Concerned Citizen turns over One Variable Monitor Lizard to PCSDS

by | May 7, 2022

One Variable Monitor Lizard (𝘝𝘒𝘳𝘒𝘯𝘢𝘴 𝘱𝘒𝘭𝘒𝘸𝘒𝘯𝘦𝘯𝘴π˜ͺ𝘴) 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 β€œEndangered 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.
