Bats of Miag-ao

Bats have been coexisting with the people of Miag-ao for more than 70 years, according to the residents living within the area. In the year 2014 (Matias), the bat population was counted to about 5,000 individuals and more than 7,000 (Matias, 2016) individuals before they transferred from the Bubog tree (Sterculia foetida) that they used to roost last 2018. They abandoned the tree after it “died”, but the tree now seems to recover three years later.

Similar efforts in provincial cities are being duplicated, such as the recent successful rehabilitation of the Iloilo River. Such efforts should be nationwide. Small streams and seasonal creeks are often forgotten or ignored as targets for conservation.
