Endemic to the islands of Negros and Panay, these deer are critically endangered due to widespread hunting in the past, as well as habitat loss. Once existing on Cebu, they are now extinct on the island. These deer are very special as they are the only deer species in the Philippines that retains its spots. Little is known about the natural habits of these beautiful mammals, as they are increasingly rare in the wild, with only six known sightings in the last ten years on Negros and Panay. We have bred them successfully in captivity, and our dream is to see them back in their natural habitat.
