NPC’s Botanical and Zoological Gardens



The tour inside the National Power Corporation or NPC’s Nature Park in Iligan gives you a break from the daily routine from the big city. Though the park’s Botanical and Zoological Garden isn’t as big as the other parks, the place serves as an ex- situ conservation ground for a few flora and fauna. 

Inside the park, they also have a butterfly garden , serving as sanctuary for butterflies which play a vital role as one of the key pollinators of some plant species. I even saw a crowded field of  endemic Philippine aroid species known as Alocasia boyceana thriving naturally in a very healthy condition.

Unlike other parks, the place is well maintained, clean and not over crowded place which is a "stress-free" environment for the captive breed. NPC's effort is an example of making both industry and environment work hand and hand . With this project, it also provide  direct protection of  other riparian and forest species of plants and animals that dwell naturally inside the compound of the National Power Corporation .

HITTING THE CLIMAX  

In my travel I  am always looking forward for something new , unique and interesting discoveries in  places i am visiting . During my tour inside NPC's Nature's Park,  I was so fortunate to witness the actual mating ritual of a pair of ostritches. I finished my degree in Biology but never had seen an actual copulation ritual of ostritch. It was a trophy for any person in the field of science to witness the wonder of reproduction among animals or any other living organisms. I just hoped that the ritual ended with good pair of fertilized eggs and shall turn into healthy baby ostritches.
