Haribon's conservation video

The Haribon Foundation for the Conservation of Natural Resources is a membership organization in the Philippines focused on the conservation of the country's biodiversity. It is a policy, advocacy, research, and action-oriented non-profit, non-governmental organization. It is considered the pioneer environmental organization in the Philippines having started out as a bird-watching group in 1972, before becoming a full-fledged conservation foundation in 1983. It was instrumental in the anti-logging movement of the 1980s in the Philippines. The name “Haribon” comes from the Filipino words “haring ibon”, literally king bird, but refers to the majestic and endangered Philippine Eagle. It is the largest eagle, in terms of wingspan, in the world.

Check out their video below and fall in love with Philippine biodiversity.

Kuya Hecky! Hi... I hope you still remember me, we met at the GK HQ with Tito Tony. :)
Anyway, Haribon Foundation is indeed an action-oriented group and is vigilant in the preservation of our rich biodiversity. We just concluded a fund-raising event last 18 Nov for the restoration of a million hectare forest cover in the Philippines. I'm happy to part of it. :D
God bless!
