Visayan warty pig

This is a critically endangered species, which lives on just 6 of Philippines islands; it is endemic to six of the Visayan Islands (Cebu, Negros, Panay, Masbate, Guimaras, and Siquijor) in the central Philippines.

More alarming still, only Negros and Panay are still known to have surviving populations of this species. The best estimates for the remaining population is put at just 200 across both of the islands.

The video below, is of this species in captivity, as I was unable to find a video of it wild.

As with many species like this, it is well worth visiting this area, as it gives locals the reason to preserve what is left of this species.
