The Guidebook to Protected Areas of the Philippines aims to highlight the environmental, historical, and cultural significance of the Philippines’ protected areas. Descriptions of unique and endemic species, rare geological formations, and rich habitats attest to the areas’ need for protection. The profiles also feature possible recreational pursuits since ecotourism, after all, is all about enjoying nature at its finest. Thus, the book illustrated points of interest and things to do, including hiking, birdwatching, diving, and swimming in waterfalls and long stretches of white sandy beaches, which are sure to rouse the interest of any traveler. The guidebook will eventually cover all Philippine protected areas, hoping to instill greater pride in the country’s natural assets, awareness of the treasures within and the benefits they provide, and foster increased contribution to their conservation.
