 OVER SEAS July 2000: Masbate state of environment

The tragedy of our islands lies in the uniqueness, the irreplaceability of the species they have developed by the slow processes of the ages.
In a reasonable world, we would have treated these islands as precious possessions, as natural museums filled with a beautiful and curious works of creation, valuable beyond price because nowhere in the world are they duplicated.

 Philippine Deforestation
Raucous, big, and brassy, hornbills once inhabited all of the larger islands of the Philippines and figure prominently in the folklore of many parts of the country.
The complexity of this issue underscores the fact that hornbills, like most other Philippine animals, still show the effects of the distant past when sea levels were lower and broad land-bridges connected many of the islands.
The writhed-billed hornbill and several of the species/subspecies from the Ice Age island of Greater Negros-Panay are virtually extinct, and a distinctive population from Ticao island is believed to be the first hornbill in the world to have become extinct.
