Calayan Rail Project II: Building stakeholders’ capacity to conserve an island-endemic species

Carl Oliveros

A preliminary survey of the Calayan Rail has found this island-endemic species under threat from hunting and habitat loss. Through a series of community consultations, a conservation action plan was created with local stakeholders that addresses these threats to the species and other local environmental issues. The proposed work covers activities that form part of the action plan aimed at building the capacity of local stakeholders to conserve the rail and the island’s natural environment. The project includes a pride campaign, teacher-training activity, law enforcement training, reforestation training, rail monitoring training and participatory resource mapping to help establish a local wildlife sanctuary.
