The Pearl Farm is located on Samal Island just a short boat ride from Davao City.

Monfort Batcave

The Bat Sanctuary of Samal Island, Monfort Eco-Park is the habitat of 1.8 millionbats, it has the largest colony of  Geoffroy’s Rousette Fruit Bats or the Rousettus Amplexicaudatus. We’ve visited the Monfort Eco-Park last month which is located at Brgy. Tambo, Island Garden City of Samal. From there, we’ve learned the importance of bats in our ecosystem. Bats are important to the health of the rainforest: more than 70% of the trees in the rainforest currently exist because bats pollinate, distribute seeds and eat otherwise harmful insect pests. Bats are good pollinators, they pollinate flowers and spread seeds for fruits and they are the main reason on the abundance of Durian fruits in Davao City. Bat manure which is known as guano is one of Mother Nature’s most effective natural fertilizers.

The Monfort Bat Cave was recognized by the Guiness World Records as the largest colony of fruit bats in the world by having 1.8 million Geoffrey’s Rousette Fruit Bats.

The Bat Sanctuary’s goal is to to conserve and protect the local bat species and habitat, to provide a place for ecologically safe and responsible bat research and to educate visitors and the local population through programs about the benefits of bats on the surrounding ecosystems. It is preserved and protected by its owner, Norma Monfort and by the local government.
