El Niño’s effect on PH wildlife

A dead Philippine Eagle owl (Bubo philippensis), a vulnerable bird species, is seen trapped in a fishing net hanging on a dead tree that reappeared as water in the Angat reservoir breached its critical level in this photo taken on Sunday. Water level in the Angat reservoir dipped further to 158.77meters on Tuesday, despite anticipated rainfall brought by the low pressure area spotted east of Cagayan.
