A certain video uploaded on Facebook showing the aforementioned wildlife species in MJR Eco Park prompted the PCSDS-Enforcement team to go to the area on July 9, 2021 to verify its veracity. Upon arrival in the area, they saw a juvenile Philippine Monkey, four Palawan Hill Mynahs, and two Palawan Peacock Pheasants.

Consequently, Mr. Agustin was apprehended for violation of RA 9147 (“Wildlife Resources Conservation and Protection Act”).

The wildlife species were seized by the PCSD enforcement team and were brought to the Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center (PWRCC) for its rehabilitation on July 10, 2021.

The Palawan Hill Mynah and Palawan Peacock Pheasant are listed as “Critically Endangered species” while the Philippine Monkey is listed as “Endangered species” under PCSD Resolution No. 15-521.
