[Credits: Palawan Council for Sustainable Development Staff ] Asian Palm Civet Pups

Different kinds of animals are on the lists of endangered species. As they became rare, the price in black markets were rising. In order to protect these animals, the government made a law and offices.

Palawan is home of protected species, among these were the Green Sea Turtles, Hawksbill, Sea Turtles, Pangolins, Palawan bearded pigs, Palawan peacock pheasant, Palawan mouse deer, Sea otter, Masked booba, Asian Palm Civet, Palawan Bearcats and many more.

On March 1, two Asian Palm Civet pups were turned over to the The Palawan Council for Sustainable Development Staff by Mr. Rob and Mrs. Jacqueline Martin from Port Barton, Palawan. The animals were brought to the Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center (Crocodile Farm) PWRCC on the same day for their rehabilitation.

The first Asian Palm Civet has a length of 41 cm with a width of 8 cm and has an eye problem. The second has a length of 45 cm, with a width of 7 cm.

The Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center (PWRCC) is the wildlife rescue center in the whole island of Palawan. It is also known as the Crocodile Farm and Nature Park, and research and rescue center for other endemic species.

Mrs. Jacqueline Martin said that she was informed by her friend named Agathe Debruille, a co-president of the Arctictis Binturong Conservation
or AB Conservation ( a non-profit organization dedicated to the Bearcat) that someone has caught Asian Palm Civet pups and asked for help. As the government in Palawan implements strict travel restrictions and health protocols, the persons who captured the animals cannot personally deliver them to the PCSD. By then, Mr and Mrs. Martin fetched the animals and turned over it themselves. She narrated during the interview of the PCSD Wildlife Trafficking Monitoring Officer Ms. Analyn Fernandez.

On the other hand, Mr. and Mrs. Martinez was also known as the founder of the Street Dog Sanctuary in Port Barton and an animal advocate. They also said that "We are willing to extend help and go beyond what is expected of them to ensure the health and safety of wildlife species, something that a genuine animal advocate would do and can relate with.".

The Palawan Council for Sustainable Development Staff (PCSD) aims to protect and save the animals to extinction. They are also assigned into the conservatory of the environment and inclusive biosphere reserve and science-for-sustainability site, guided by the Strategic Environmental Plan.

They are also encouraging the local residents in Palawan to turn over animals they have rescued or found in their office. As of today, they have received animals such as Asian Leaf Turtles, Saltwater Crocodile, Hawksbill Turtles, Pangolins, Southeast Asian Box Turtles, Reticulated Python, Philippine Long-tailed Macaque, Eastern Cattle Egret, Palawan Hill Mynah, Eastern Grass Owl, North African Hedgehog, Goshawk, Asian Small-clawed Otter, One Pacific Emerald Dove, Wood Owl, Osprey, and others.

With the help of the PCSD, local residents and animal advocate persons, these animals can have a better place, a chance for survival and away from disappearing. They will be safe from poachers and avoid being killed.
