One Philippine Coucal (𝘊𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘳𝘰𝘱𝘶𝘴 𝘷𝘪𝘳𝘪𝘥𝘪𝘴) was turned over by a concerned citizen to the Palawan Council for Sustainable Development Staff (PCSDS) on July 30, 2021 in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan.
The concerned citizen was Ms. Ninfa Rowy, a citizen of Barangay Sta. Monica, Puerto Princesa City. She stated that his son, Mr. MJay Arthur Rowy, found the said bird in their yard at around 4:00 PM on July 30, 2021. Upon realizing that the bird cannot fly very well and that stray dogs in the area may attack it, they decided to turn it over to the PCSDS immediately.
After receiving the bird from Ms. Rowy, employees of the PCSDS immediately brought it to the Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center (PWRCC) in Barangay Irawan, Puerto Princesa City so that it will be given proper medical treatment.
The Philippine Coucal is listed as a “Least Concern” species under the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species.
