DENR-CAR regional and field personnel led the Asian Waterbird 2021 Census and wetlands and habitat monitoring at the Magat-Maris Wetlands in Alfonso Lista, Ifugao on January 14-15, 2021. They were joined by local officials from the municipalities of Alfonso Lista and Aguinaldo.
 
In between the counts and habitat monitoring were short meetings where Alfonso Lista Mayor Edralin B. Alipio and Aguinaldo Mayor Gaspar Chilagan, Jr. shared their development plans with Atty. Cleo Sabado-Andrada, the Assistant Regional Executive Director for Management Services (ARD-MS) of DENR-CAR and requested support for the ecotourism program.
 
In response, ARD Andrada expressed her gratitude for the active participation of the stakeholders. “Your presence demonstrates commitment to environmental stewardship. Thank you for leading the way and sharing your planning steps in protecting and enhancing our natural resources, particularly the wetlands.”
 
Magat-Maris Wetlands are permanent migratory bird monitoring sites in the Cordilleras being monitored by Wetlands International as source of data on status of migratory birds along the East Asian Australasian Flyway. According to Ms. Linda Claire I. Pawid, Head of the Regional Protected Area Management and Biodiversity Conservation Section, the wetlands remain a stable ecosystem that can support the migratory birds coming in from different parts of the world.
 
The monitoring of birds during their fly in and fly out resulted to 7,400 egrets , 40 grey heron and 1 purple heron. This year’s count for egrets is significantly lower than the 11,330 on 2020.
 
Meanwhile, the monitoring of ducks done at Lamehaan Island showed an increase this year with 360 Philippine ducks and 260 tufted ducks compared to the 416 and 415, respectively, on 2020.
