Palawan is one of the real treasures of the Philippines. It is the largest province in the country in terms of total area of jurisdiction. Stretching from the Mindoro Strait down to the tip of Borneo, it is a magnificent, coral‐fringed range of jungle‐clad mountainous islands jutting up dramatically from the Sulu Sea. The provinces almost 2,000 kilometres (1,200 mi) of irregular coastline are dotted with roughly 1,780 islands and islets, rocky coves, and sugar‐white sandy beaches.
The flora and fauna in Palawan is quite unique to the island, and is said to have more in common with that of Borneo than with the rest of the Philippines. Due in equal parts to its rugged topography, its small population and its distance from other islands in the archipelago, Palawan has managed to stay largely pristine.
Palawan has been cited by Lonely Planet as one of the most rewarding outdoor-sports destinations not just in the Philippines, but in all of Southeast Asia. Its world‐class diving, snorkelling and jungle trekking make it a must‐see destination for nature lovers and adventure‐sports fans.
Calauit Island in the north‐western coast of Palawan was declared a game preserve and wildlife sanctuary in 1977 as the Philippines responded to an appeal by the IUCN or the International Union of Conservation of Nature to save endangered animals in Africa.
Covering an area of 3,700 hectares Calauit Island Wildlife Sanctuary is a natural area where the entire environment and all the plants and animals are allowed to live in a natural state with the absolute minimum of human interference or disturbance. It is home to both endemic animals and African wildlife. African animals from Kenya, which include giraffes, zebras, impalas, waterbucks, bushbacks, gazelles, elands and topis live in harmony with endemic Philippine animals like the Calamian‐ and mouse‐ deer, bearcat, Palawan peacock pheasant, sea turtles and Philippine crocodiles. Their numbers have increased from a hundred to well over six‐hundred as they thrive in their new Pacific home. The Wildlife Sanctuary evolved to become the countrys major conservation showcase and unique nature park. This island is also a haven for more than seventy species of birds, ten of which are rare, that rest and flock two hours before sunset, after their whole day flight.
