As very little is known about the abundance of the Camiguin forest mouse (1), no specific conservation strategy has yet been formulated. However, the area of Camiguin where the forest mouse resides has been proposed as a protected area by the National Integrated Protected Areas System (8).
The Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office of the Philippines has established a Forest Protection Committee on Camiguin to control illegal logging. This committee is vigilant in its policing, prosecuting those who illegally extract forest products. The committee is also strongly supported by local mayors, who encourage forest conservation due to the growing ecotourism industry on the island. Furthermore, reforestation schemes are underway on the island, and a reported 1,500 hectares of forest have already been restored (8).
