Makapal [thick] - Litratong Pinoy

Berde at makapal pa ang kagubatan sa Subic Freeport. Kabilang pala ang kagubatan ng Subic sa mga protected areas dito sa Pilipinas. Pinangalagaan ito ng mga kano ng higit sa 50-taon noong nandito pa ang US Naval Base at pinagpapatuloy ngayon ng SBMA. Sari-saring habitat ang nasa gubat na ito at ang resulta ng forest biodiversity survey ay nagsiwalat ng 745 species ng halaman. Tatlo dito ang endangered at apat ang potentially threatened. Kaya kailangan ng madaliang pagkilos upang mapanatili ang pangangalaga hindi lang sa kagubatan ng Subic kundi sa iba pang kagubatan ng Pilipinas.


The forests in Subic Freefort are still thick and green. A part of the Philippine national forest, Subic forest is a protected area. The forests were protected from over-exploitation for more than 50 years while under the jurisdiction of the US Naval Base. The current preservation of Subic Forest in under the administration of SBMA. A wide range of habitats are present in these forests and results of the forest biodiversity survey revealed 745 plant species, three of which are endangered while four others are potentially threatened. Therefore, there is an urgent need of preserving not only the Subic Forest but other forests in the rest of the country as well.

Hi Luna, your forest is really nice! I am wondering if the monkeys are like some that want to jump onto your shoulders?

Happy RT! Your wisemen are very pretty. Thank you for visiting my nutcrackers.

Mabuti naman at mukhang alaga ang gubat na yan, patunay na ang mga nakikitang 'residente'. Sana naman ay mawala sa list of endangered plants ang mga nabanggit mo. Tao lang talaga ang makakagawa ng solusyon.

Thanks for sharing this...happy LP! :)

Nakakatuwa naman how the SBMA was still able to maintain the lush forest there in Subic. Sana maprotektahan talaga ito no.

Happy LP!
