    Product Description

    Conservation Status: Endangered

    Geographic Range: Endemic to Panay, including the offshore islands of Sicogon and Pan de Azucar, Guimaras, Negros, Masbate and Ticao

    One of our West Visayan Big Five species, habitat loss and hunting play a big role in their decline. In Talarak Foundation’s breeding centers, these birds are safe from poaching, and from losing their homes. With a very successful birth rate averaging ten per year, we are hopeful we can find safe habitats for these birds in the wild.
