Thank you for Your Support!

Before mentioning any other supporters: a big thank you to our Philippine coworkers such as our committed veterinarian and director Dr. Enrique Sanchez, indispensable Rhea Santillan, the forest rangers, wildlife rescue caretakers and other coworkers for their hard work, courage and committment.

PhilinCon coordinates with internationals but also local NGOs, POs and relevant government offices on the Island of Panay, as well as maintaining and increasing contacts through local and national media.

Here we want to thank all our supporters who have so far contributed to successful protection of Panay lowland rainforest and its priceless species, contributing work and time, scientific data, photos, ideas or donations. We couldn’t be here without you. Thank you.

more information about the governmental DENR and other local adminstrative units on our page

Together we put up signages, wrote a coffeetable book, did a big reforestation event in the central panay mountains, did education activites in schools, did alternative livelihood projects and a survey on endangered birds. As always our rangers went on patrol.

Thank you, for supporting our work, Ms. Legarda and the DENR-Team.

Bristol Zoological Society

We greatly appreciate that a team of scientists of the Bristol Zoological Society (BZS) a conservation and education charity, has joined for developing a conservation action plan for the critically endangered Negros bleeding-heart dove (Gallicolumba keayi)  in and together with the possibly last remaining intact habitat sustaining a substantial breeding population.

The team is led by Dr. Daphne Kerhoas, Lecturer in Conservation Science, with Dr. Mark Abrahams providing interdiscipilinary skills for mapping, application of modern techniques and human-wildlife interactions. Cooperation with them is just a pleasure. 
Starting with activities like mapping, acoustic and camera trap surveys and assessment of threats, the results of this work will be a valuable support for the forest rangers. The project will help to protect the entire ecosystem with many species and in addition help local  communities to develop alternative livelihood projects.

Thank you, Daphne and your Team!

Obituary Richard Perron

We mourn the passing-away of our long-term active supporter, Richard Perron, dedicated conservationist and founder of Quantum Conservation e.V.

Richard was for many years, organizer of the annual “ZooKunft” (zoo future) meeting in Germany with podium presentations and discussion about ex situ conservation and management, also supporting in situ conservation. Being involved in Philippine nature conservation himself, he provided longterm valuable advice and active support for the PESCP and later for PhilinCon. The project owes him a lot.

Richard died after severe disease in 2017. Prior to his death he still managed to publish the book:

Perron, Richard Michael, 2016: Taxonomy of the genus Casuarius – the defined & known living Cassowary species and subspecies. Schüling Verlag, Germany, ISBN: 978-3-86523-272-4  

Thank you, Mr. Perron and the Team!

Erwin Wrath Foundation

Erwin Warth Stiftung Flora und Fauna (Erwin Warth Foundation, Fauna and Flora), Stuttgart, Germany)
The President Hilde Stühlinger is extremely committed to the conservation of nature and people as revealed by her personal engagement including a physically most taxing visit to the project. Her unwavering support of the project’s agenda and creative proposals proved indispensable for carrying out our diverse activities.

Thank you, Ms. Stühlinger and your Team!

Georg Gewers

We owe a debt of gratitude to the award-winning architect Dipl.-Ing. Georg Gewers, Berlin, for personally supporting our work in the Philippines, beside plenty of own work, providing invaluable active help and advice.
Congratulations to him and the entire team for another recent prize – German Design Award Special 2019.

Thank you, Mr. Gewers!

Bird Protection Committee

Vogelschutzkomitee e. V.
(German Bird Protection Committee)
Sincere thanks and appreciation for long-term active support to Prof. Dr. Eberhard Schneider, President .
The bird protection committee is highly efficient with projects protecting wild birds within their habitats, like prevention of illegal capture of European migratory birds with traps, nets and glue sticks in the Mediterranian area or protection and renaturation of an important resting area for cranes. In addition Prof. Schneider efficiently helps us to protect the unique, endangered avifauna of the Philippine island of Panay, his organization has crucially supported our efforts toward rehabilitation and release of endangered wildlife, nest guarding and forest ranger operations.

Thank you, Mr. Schneider and your team!

Frankfurt Zoological Society

Frankfurt Zoological Society (FZS)
From the inception of our project, the FZS had been the main supporter till end of 2009, then gradually phasing out. Wiithout the support of this organization which is active worldwide the project would not have been nearly as successful as it became. Through its help at times of greatest and unforeseen needs (typhoons!) it proved to be an outstanding supporter.

Save the Rainforest

Rettet den Regenwald e. V. (Rainforest Rescue)
This organization with its worldwide support of indigenous people and the forests they live in and depend on was instrumental in helping PhilinCon monitoring the forests of NW Panay in search of illegal activities through the project’s Forest Rangers.

Bernd Vornefeld

And many thanks to Bernd Vornefeld who, since many years, is our savior from all sorts of computer trouble and technical problems! More information

David Wynne

David Wynne, Alexandria, Virginia, USA is a great longterm supporter who has, since several years, provided invaluable equipment such as cameras, suggestions for technical improvement of working conditions for the forest rangers, books for the local library, and equipment for the Philippine coworkers, including school supply for their children. Thanks a lot for this very encourageing and useful help!

Thank you – to all who donated. We grately appreciate your donation, your work & time, scientific data, photos and your ideas.

Please continue – so we can continue, too.
