Agusan Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary

A vast complex of freshwater marshes and watercourses with numerous shallow lakes and ponds in the upper basin of the Agusan River and its tributaries, which rise in the hills of eastern Mindanao. Some parts of the marsh have been converted into fishponds and rice paddies.
The site acts as storage for rain water and reduces the downstream flow of flood water into Butuan City and other population centers.
