The Philippine crocodile (Crocodylus mindorensis) is the most endangered crocodile in the world and as the name suggests, endemic to the Philippines. Scientists estimate the adult population consists of less then 100 animals in the wild. In the remote Sierra Madre there are still a few crocodiles left and locals have learned to live with them. The Mabuwaya Foundation is doing great research and educational work in this region with hopes to stop this species from becoming extinct.
