The Philippine crocodile still survives in the wild in the foothills of the Northern Sierra Madre Mountains in Northeast Luzon. This area still is home to a large number of endemic and threatened species that have become rare or extinct elsewhere in the Philippines. The Northern Sierra Madre Natural Park in Isabela Province is the largest protected area of the country
