Can you find the Haring Ibon?
In 2014, a group of botanists who discovered the Coral Plant on Mt. Mingan, also happened to spot a Philippine Eagle in the vicinity as well. Once Haribon researchers were notified, they verified the presence of Haring Ibon on Mt. Mingan and started work to protect the Philippine Eagles living there.
So far over 19,000 hectares of forest has been declared Critical Habitat by local communities, but there are more Haring Ibon to protect, and little time (and forest) remaining to keep them alive.
As 2016 begins, so does more work to protect the Haring Ibon. Here are 3 ways you can help:
- Donate today through our Ushare portal here.
- Become a member of the Haribon Foundation. Not only do your fees go to on-going conservation work in the country, but your presence in the conservation movement can help stimulate change in your own forest or domain.
- Help spread word of Haring Ibon in Luzon by liking and sharing this video on Youtube and on our Facebook page.
Now that we’ve found them, what must we do next? Read more about the Haribon Foundation’s Philippine Eagle Project, 40 years in the making.
