Del Carmen Mangrove Reserve

Take a tour of this fascinating wildlife reserve by traditional banca boat, kayak, or stand up paddleboard. Measuring in at 8,620 hectares, this vast tract of mangrove forest is recognized by the Department of Natural Resources to be the largest contiguous mangrove forest in the Philippines.

27 out of the 70 mangrove species in the world are represented. Many rare and endangered species of flora and fauna in both marine, wetland and terrestrial areas have found sanctuary here.

This unique area is also home to the saltwater crocodile (crocodylus porosus), the largest land and river-dwelling predator in the world. I have no exact info about the croc thing (just read it online) and i have no plan doing research either. Take a good look at this guy below. He is the reason why Del Carmen Mangrove Reserve is still magnificent up to this day.
