Site description (baseline)
During a recent rapid survey, Mauro (2003) found that the habitats on Mount Mak Fahik include extensive primary tropical dry forest above c.400 m, and those on Mount Sarim (to 725 m) include tropical dry forests, which have been repeatedly burnt, with patches of forest converted to various crops including corn and tobacco
Twenty-seven restricted-range species have been recorded in this IBA, including the Endangered Timor Green-pigeon, and the Critically Endangered Yellow-crested Cockatoo also occurs there (Mauro 2003).
