Photo screen-grabbed from DENR presentation on Biodiversity







"We can only do so much..." It was an excuse coming from Dr. Mundita Lim when we made some reactions on the current status of the illegal trade/ exploitation of Philippine wildlife.

During the Green Bloggers Meet Up, Dr. Lim showed us the vast decline in the numbers of endemic species that can be found in the natural habitat. In her presentation on Biodiversity, she have shown us a lot of flora and fauna being poached, killed or sold in the black market, and patronized by locals or foreigners or being shipped to other countries like China.

That Yellow Thing Called Java Jazz Café | A Tagaytay Experience for Less than 1k Series

The Rape of Calaguas Island






 
I don't know what it was but here was a hesitation holding me back to share my Calaguas experience two years ago. Maybe I was pinned on the ground not to make any more fuzz over this destination, aggravating the adverse impact of human intrusion on this beautiful island located at the eastern side of Bicol region.
