About this book

This book relates how more than 510 unique species came to exist in the Philippines, and explains why the imminent destruction of the rainforest threatens not only its unique plants and animals but also the economic and social well-being of the nation. There are also guidelines on the crucial steps that the Filipino people must take to protect both their magnificent natural heritage and their country's future.
