One Variable Monitor Lizard (𝘝𝘢𝘳𝘢𝘯𝘶𝘴 𝘱𝘢𝘭𝘢𝘸𝘢𝘯𝘦𝘯𝘴𝘪𝘴) was turned over by Mr. Larry Bacaro of Lomboy Street, Barangay San Jose, Puerto Princesa City, to the Palawan Council for Sustainable Development Staff (PCSDS) on May 4, 2022.
Said reptile was found by Mr. Bacaro near the poultry area in Barangay San Jose, Puerto Princesa City, where he is working. He immediately captured the wildlife species to protect the chicks in the poultry area. Thereafter, he surrendered the wildlife species to the PCSDS.
Mr. Bacaro has turned over a Variable Monitor Lizard to the PCSDS for the second time because the same kind of wildlife species mentioned above targets the poultry area for its food consumption.
The Variable Monitor Lizard is listed as an “Endangered Species” under the PCSD Resolution No. 15-521.
The PCSDS is urging persons who happen to find or rescue wildlife to turn them over to our office, which can be contacted thru hotline numbers 0935-116-2336 (Globe/TM) and 0948-937-2200 (Smart/TNT). You may also send a message to our Facebook page with your concerns.
