MANILA (AFP): The Philippines has the most
number of endemic bird species which are in danger of
extinction, according to a nation wide wildlife report
obtained here yesterday.
"The Philippine Red Data book', written by the
Wildlife Conservation Society of the Philippines, noted
that the country has 40 endangered bird species more
than any other country.
This includes the Cebu flower-pecker of which
only four are known to still be alive, making it the most
endangered bird in the world, the 'Red Data Book"
An endangered species is defined as one hat has a
20 percent chance of becoming extinct in 20 years.
The 'Data Book' said the threat of extinction was
due to the growing destruction of the forests which are
the habitats of the birds and other wild animals, many
of which are similarly endangered.
