The Philippine government and conservation organizations identified and protect several wetlands with international importance (Haribon Foundation 1989; PAWB 1993). This resulted to the declaration of four Ramsar sites and two East Asian-Australasian Flyway site network. The wetlands in the Philippines had undergone significant changes over the past century. With a wide spread conversion of wetlands into reclamation and fishponds threatened the crucial staging sites for migratory birds. Preventing and reversing these declines requires accurate information on the importance of wetlands potential for waterbirds conservation. Thus, this project will provide (1.) training to local communities within the Negros Occidental Coastal Wetlands Conservation Area on waterbird identification and monitoring and guiding. Birdwatching is slowly gaining popularity within the island. (2) bring out elementary students within Eusebio R. Quitco Elementary School Tibsoc, San Enrique on birdwatching and guided by the trained guides within the community.
