One Philippine Palm Civet (𝘗𝘢𝘳𝘢𝘥𝘰𝘹𝘶𝘳𝘶𝘴 𝘱𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘪𝘱𝘱𝘦𝘯𝘴𝘪𝘴) was turned over by Mr. Steven John Andao, staff of the DENR- Protected Area Management Office (DENR-PAMO) to the Palawan Council for Sustainable Development Staff-Wildlife Trafficking Monitoring Office (PCSDS-WTMO)-El Nido on March 3, 2022.
Mr. Andao narrated that while they were conducting a transect swimming in the area mentioned above, a caretaker from Pasandigan Island in El Nido, Palawan approached them and handed over the Philippine Palm Civet.
The said caretaker found the wildlife species while being bitten by the dogs at dawn on the same day. It suffered injuries and wounds as a result of the incident.
The DENR-PAMO then coordinated with the PCSDS-WTMO and prompted the latter to retrieve the wildlife species. With the assistance of the PCSDS District Management Division (DMD)-North, the wildlife species was brought on the same day to the Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center (PWRCC) for its rehabilitation.
The Philippine Palm Civet weighs approximately 400 grams.
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 for your other concerns.
