Biodiversity Conservation and Sustainable Development as they See It:
Community-based Conservation with the Manobo-Tinananon of Arakan, North Cotabato
Excerpts from the case study
May 2013

In Arakan Valley in Mindanao, the Indigenous Manobo tribes, through the assistance of the Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEFI) have adopted the rainforestation technology to build forest patches by means of corridors. By doing so, they would be expanding forest habitats to allow viable populations of the critically endangered Philippine Eagle (Pithecophaga jeffreyi) to thrive. The USAID-FPE project enabled PEFI to apply lessons learned in conservation work with the IPs, using its community-driven conservation and development framework.
