 The island of Cebu has 14 endemic bird species and subspecies. Tabunan forest is a unique type of natural limestone forest in Central Cebu. It was thought to be the sole remaining habitat for some of the worlds most endangered birds including the Cebu Black Shama (Copsychus cebuensis), the Cebu Flowerpecker (Dicaeum quadricolor) and the Cebu Hanging Parakeet (Loriculus philippensis chrysonotus). This forest also holds the largest known stand of the Cebu Cinnamon Tree (Cinnamomum cebuense). It was also believed that the Tabunan Forest was the last known source of native plant propagules for future forest restoration programmes.
