Sibuyan Romblon

Sibuyan is a small cresscent-shaped island in Romblon Province, 33% of which is covered with primary dense forests. The island has never been commercially connected to the rest of the Philippines archipelago until very recently and hence has one of the world’s highest rates of endemism and biodiversity.  Some 54 species of trees are found nowhere else in the world. For these reason, in February 1996 former President Fidel V. Ramos declared the 2,057 meter-high central mountain ranges as the Mount Guiting-Guiting Natural Park.
