Palawan rain forests

WWF Abstract

Palawan Island is dominated by mountains that run its length. A majority of the montane habitat remains intact, but the lowland forests have been destroyed by logging and slash-and-burn agriculture. These activities have begun to destroy forests at higher elevations, slowly eating away the remaining forests from the bottom up. If these actions aren’t controlled, the animals of this ecoregion will soon have nowhere else to go.
