  Terrestrial Ecoregions -- Sulu Archipelago rain forests (IM0156)
During the Pleistocene, the majority of the present Sulu Archipelago was one island, separated from Basilan-Mindanao to the north and greater Sibutu (and Borneo) to the south by deepwater channels of 205 m and 290 m depths, respectively.
The Sulus (Sangasanga, Bongao, Simunul, Tawitawi) also support a population of slow loris (Nycticebus coucang), a Sundaic primate that is not found in the remainder of the Philippines (Heaney 1986).
Tawitawi is not heavily populated, but future economic development on the island is a concern (Allen 1998; Stattersfield et al.

 Species info - HTML
Evidence from the entire Tawitawi group suggests that its population is currently very low (Diesmos and Pedregosa 1995), with an estimate of under 20 pairs in the main mountain range on Tawitawi, fuelling the belief that "this will be the first [Sulu] species to become extinct" (D. Allen in litt.
On Tawitawi, birds nest in cavities in tall trees of large diameter, and clutch size is reported by villagers to be two, with fledging in May_June (D. Allen in litt.
In 1997 the Mindanao State University (Tawitawi) and the Haribon Foundation began collaborating on an awareness campaign focusing on the conservation of terrestrial biodiversity (NADM).

Otherwise none is known, although in 1997 Mindanao State University (Tawitawi) and the Haribon Foundation commenced collaboration on an awareness campaign focusing on the conservation of terrestrial biodiversity on Tawitawi (NADM).
Measures proposed The species is known from only one "key site" (Tawitawi) and this clearly deserves further survey so that appropriate areas on the island (or possibly on other islands, depending on if and where the species is finally rediscovered) might be formally designated under the NIPAS process.
There is an urgent need to protect the remaining patches of forest on Tawitawi itself, and nearby islands in the archipelago.

 Tawitawi Brown-dove (Phapitreron cinereiceps) - BirdLife species factsheet
The Tawitawi population is assumed to be very small, but the species is apparently shy and, as such, may not be as rare as feared.
It is unlikely to be altitudinally restricted, except that the maximum elevation on Tawitawi is c.500 m.
Threats In 1994, remaining primary forest on Tawitawi was being rapidly cleared, and the remaining areas of forest were highly degraded and recently logged.

 Tawitawi --  Encyclopædia Britannica
Tawitawi Island is of volcanic origin, is hilly and heavily wooded, and is about 34 miles (55 km) long and from 6 to 14 miles (10 to 23 km) wide.
They live in the southern islands of the Sulu Archipelago, southwest of Mindanao, mainly in the Tawitawi island cluster.
Located between the Sulu Sea to the northwest and the Celebes Sea to the southeast, the province stretches southwestward from Basilan Island south of the tip of the Zamboanga Peninsula toward the Tawitawi island group and Borneo; it consists of approximately 3,000 scattered and somewhat isolated islands and islets.

 Suroyan and World Cinema in Tawitawi by Cris Rollo   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
I must admit I have mixed emotions, dominated by a sense of anxiety and a good dose of fear, because I was traversing places that have notoriously hugged the national headlines in recent months.
Tawitawi in my mind conjures up images of pristine white idyllic beaches lined with leaning coconut trees sheltering nimble young girls dancing the Pangalay, janggay-accented fingers and supple arms swaying with the sea breeze that floated over clear waters and weaving around sea houses built on stilts.
Pilandok's wedding ceremony was even used to acknowledge the presence of the esteemed guests in the audience, particularly Hadja Sitti Sarah Jane M. Matba, the wife of Tawitawi Governor Rashidin Matba who generously hosted the SKE delegation almost single-handedly.

It is known by just two specimens taken on Tawitawi in 1891, when it was described as extremely rare.

 Barking Moonbat Early Warning System
While Japanese soldiers fought and died fanatically on islands of the Empire’s outer defense perimeter, the Imperial Navy braced itself for the time when the inner perimeter of islands would come under attack, notably the Marianas, the last major obstacle facing the Americans in the Central Pacific.
On June 6, 1944 (D-Day in Normandy), the US Navy fast carriers had sortied from recently-captured Majuro atoll in the Marshalls, in advance of the landing forces that were to hit Saipan on June 15.
Nor were aircraft Ozawa’s only losses; the Yankee submarines that had been plaguing him since Tawitawi now cost him HJMS Taiho, newest and largest of his carriers, and HJMS Shokaku, veteran of the Pearl Harbor and Coral Sea campaigns, among others.
