Welcome to the UPLB Museum of Natural History!
News and Updates
More than twenty biodiversity researchers from the Philippines attended the UPLB Museum of Natural History’s online “Biodiversity Data Mobilization” workshop last 23-24 March 2023. The participating researchers came from UP Los Baños, UP Diliman, UP Mindanao, Philippine National Museum of Natural History, DOST-funded research programs, and other organizations across the country.
The workshop served as the participants’ introduction to the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF), an online platform which can be used by researchers and organizations to publish openly and online various biodiversity-associated data papers.
Our Major activities
More than a Century of Natural History Research
We are continually documenting the country’s flora and fauna since 1908 and the extraordinary efforts of the university’s men and women behind these.
Small Islands Biodiversity Research Program
Our more than 7,000 islands and islets are home to diverse communities of species yet to be studied. We provide focus on conducting biodiversity research in small islands, places which are usually unexplored.
Cave Biodiversity Research Program
Caves in the Philippines and the biodiversity they nurture and protect are still undocumented and yet to be fully known. We specialize in researching these unique ecosystems.
Integrated Biodiversity Exhibits
Promoting and educating the public on the Philippines’ rich flora and fauna is our important mandate. We pride ourselves as a preferred learning space by students, researchers, teachers and the general public.
