Our expeditions are carried out as integral components of research programs, and sometimes, through collaborative work with other agencies. We are also able to conduct field collection, whenever permitted, as part of our public service activities extended to local government units, non-government agencies, and private or corporate organizations.
Our small income from entrance and other fees also allow us to carry out regular work on monitoring, documentation and preservation of biodiversity through collection trips and expeditions in identified areas in the Philippines.
Here are some of our expeditions done in the past.
