Here are the Three (3) more things you need to know about Agusan Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary:
- In the dry months, thousands of birds come from as faraway as Japan, China and Russia to escape the chilly winter winds of Northern Asia. Over 200 individual species have been known to spend at least part of the year in the marsh, making it one of Asia’s most important transit points for wild birds.
- Found in the heart of Mindanao’s Agusan Basin, this vast expanse of marsh covers an area roughly the size of Metro Manila. It contains nearly 15% of the nation’s fresh water resources in the form of swamp forests.
- Agusan Marsh is also host to “Wonderland”, where you can see natural “bonsai” trees crafted by nature.
