Site description This IBA include an area of forest shown on recent forest cover maps in a range of hills in northern Sorsogon Province, close to the border with Albay. The hills only rise to just over 1,000 m, so the forest is mainly lowland, with limited areas of montane forest around the highest peaks. Most forest in this area is reported to have been logged over in the past. Bacon-Manito is currently the site of a NAPOCOR Geothermal Power Project.
Key Biodiversity There are only a few records of the threatened or restricted-range birds of the Luzon Endemic Bird Area in the general area around this poorly known site, but on the basis of the habitats present it could prove to support a similar avifauna to that of Mt Bulusan (PH035).
