Agusan Marsh UNESCO World Heritage

Agusan Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary is a large complex of unique freshwater marshes and watercourses with numerous small shallow lakes and ponds located in the upper parts of the Agusan River and its tributaries of eastern Mindanao, Philippines. It is one of the largest and the most contained freshwater catch basin wetland in the Philippines. The main habitats of the marsh include freshwater swamp forest, secondary scrub, herbaceous swamp, lakes, pools and rivers, rice paddies and other agricultural land. It is threatened by invasive species (plants and animals), habitat degradations, and water pollution. Photographs Pierre Fidenci
