Climate change is a global phenomenon that is being experienced by all levels of society, regardless of race and species, and in all types of ecosystems, regardless of geographic location. It will have diverse effects on biodiversity, which will directly impact on food security, water supply and livelihood among others, especially for the poor and more vulnerable sectors of human society. More importantly, all forms of life including human society are trying their best to adapt and survive.
The publication of Statistics on Protected Areas and Wildlife Resources is a continuing activity of the Protected Areas and Wildlife Bureau in order to provide timely and accurate statistical information on protected areas and wildlife resources essential to planning, policy formulation and decision-making. It represents basic and updated information provided by the DENR Field Offices and other operating units of the Bureau.
The Protected Areas and Wildlife Bureau came up with this Handbook on Cave Classification for the Philippines with the end in view of providing necessary information that can guide the field offices in the development of specific cave management and conservation programs.
This compendium hopes to provide insights and guidelines on successful rehabilitation based from updated research information and technologies gathered on a national scale, organized and synthesized by the Ecosystems Research and Development Bureau.
It is envisioned that the application of the technologies presented in this compendium will be instrumental in the recovery and management of the damaged urban ecosystem for the provision of a safe and productive environmental life for urban people.
This compendium was developed from compiled research information, current technologies and personal experiences by various scientists and watershed managers on successful rehabilitation measures employed in damaged, critical and marginal watershed areas. Specifically, this handbook provides the reader a better outlook and understanding of the biological and physical components of a damaged ecosystem and how to rebuild its various interrelated components based on ecological strategies.
This compendium is ERDB’s attempt to provide a selection of appropriate upland rehabilitation strategies for ERDB regional counterparts and other interested agencies/entities. May this compendium serve as reference guidebook in promoting the restoration of degraded upland areas.
This Research Compendium on Mining Areas and Volcanic Debris-laden Areas has been developed to serve as a sound and thorough basis for selection of appropriate, effective and efficient strategies for the restoration of damaged mining and volcanic ash-laden areas of the country.
This case study on Anilao is the fourth in a series of analyses being undertaken by WWF-Philippines. This series aims to communicate key issues and lessons from field projects to fellow practitioners, program and policy staff, personnel of managed and/or protected areas, partners, and donors. This fourth case related the establishment of conservation fees paid by scuba-divers in Mabini and Tingloy, Batangas, and the issues and challenges in the face of financial success.

Seeing whales and other marine wildlife in their natural environment can be a thrilling experience. In our excitement, we sometimes forget that our presence has an effect on wildlife and their habitat. Just like us, marine animals need space to find food, choose mates, raise young, socialize and rest.
