Marinduque Wildlife Sanctuary includes almost 9,000 hectares of Central Marinduque timberland. This woodland area is home to a broad range of flora and wildlife, including imperiled Rufous Hornbill (Rufous hydrocorax), giant cloud pig (Phloeomys pallidus), and indigenous butterfly, reptile, insect and bird species.
This vast space is one the few areas in the Philippines that have been designated as a Wildlife Sanctuary in light of the abundance of flora and fauna that can be found here. To get here, you'll have to go on a trek that can last about 2 hours, depending on your pace. As you make you way along the trail, you'll see rolling hills, breathtaking views, and even small waterfalls in certain areas.
Best time to visit
Since travelers will have to go on a trek to reach this sanctuary, it's best to go on a trip here during the local dry season (December to May).
