Agusan del Sur (Agsur) knowing where you are...

Agusan del Sur, the place I'm in is a province belonging and within CARAGA region. Situated and bounded on the north by Agusan del Norte, on the south by Compostela Valley and Davao del Norte, on the east by Surigao del Sur and on the west by Misamis Oriental and Bukidnon. This province comprises fourteen municipalities, seven (7) of which are located along Maharlika highway namely: Sibagat, Bayugan, Prosperidad, San Francisco, Rosario, Bunawan and Trento. The other seven (7) are as follows: Esperanza, San Luis, Talacogon, La Paz, Loreto, Sta. Josefa and Veruela are along the Agusan river.

People-most of the original native residents came from the three tribes, the Manobos, Higaonons, and the Banwaons. These tribes eventually came from their ethnic origins, the Negritoes and Mamanwas who originally occupies the heavily forested Agusan del Sur a long time ago. From the three tribes, a number of them still exist in the innermost barangays of forested area in the far municipalities of this province.

Agusan Marsh is the place where a vast area of wildlife sanctuary and a swamp forests can be found. Really vast as in about 15% of Philippines’ water resources this holds. Comprising of freshwater marshes and shallow lakes and ponds, numerous of these wetlands were converted into fish ponds and rice paddies. The site acts as storage for rain water and reduces the immediate downstream flow of flood water into Butuan City and other population centers.
