Peter's Cottage, Sinapyahan Beach


Peter's Cottage is the base of operations for the Wildlife Habitat Conservation Siargao (WiHaCo) and currently serves the exploration of the rare bee species Megachile (Challomegachile) clotho. Simultaneously, the approximately 3.5 hectares of land should be fully protected as a habitat for flora and fauna.
In this habitat a population of pitcher plants, and a small-flowered toothbrush orchid (Dendrobium secundum) is located. Furthermore, at a very inaccessible location, we suspect an aerie of the brahminy kite (Haliastur indus).

Peter's Cottage is located on a paradisiacal beach called Sinapyahan, on Kangbangyo Island, the Barangay Caub, belonging to the municipality of Del Carmen (Siargao), Surigao del Norte, Pilippines.
