Assessing the status of small tamaraw populations in Mindoro with camera traps

The tamaraw, or Mindoro dwarf buffalo, is a critically endangered species restricted to the island of Mindoro in the Philippines. There are only a few known isolated populations scattered across the island. Their conservation status remains unclear and requires to be updated in order to adopt and adapt the best conservation measures. This project, which is part of a larger socio-environmental program, aims at using camera trap technology in order to assess one of these small subpopulations and thus, to assist local stakeholders in selecting the most appropriate strategy of intervention. 20 camera traps will be deployed in the field according to a specific design and will undergo five consecutive monthly movements in order to accumulate a total of 100 positions. This project will also help to improve links with the local indigenous communities living in the area, thus facilitating their integration in the future conservation efforts.
