  Over the past century, the islands that make up the Philippines have lost nearly three-quarters of their mangrove forests. Panay Island in the Western Visayas is a classic example. It used to be home to o hectares of lush mangrove forests. In , only hectares : Gaia Discovery. The Philippines is known to be one of the mangrove biodiversity centers in the world (next to Indonesia). Mangroves provide several ecological and socio-economic services to coastal communities valued at US$ ,/ha (UNEP ). However, there have been massive mangrove losses particularly during the ss periods. Philippines has about islands with 3 major islands, Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao and has ab km of shorelines with vast areas of mangrove ecosystem. Government policies, which dictated development in both the uplands and coastal areas, have been based mainly on abundant available resources without due consideration for sustainability. The Panay monitor (Varanus mabitang) is an endangered monitor lizard native to Panay Island in the Philippines. Unlike most monitors, it is a specialized frugivore. Distribution and habitat.
