The Philippines is a tropical country with a highly diverse flora, It is home to a lot of endemic species such as the Jade Vine (Strongylodon macrobotrys), Cebu cinnamon (Cinnamomum cebuense), Philippine Teak (Tectona philippinensis) and ground orchids (Paphiopedilum spp.) The largest flower, the devil's betel box (Rafflesia arnoldii), may have made its home in neighboring Borneo but several representatives of this genus can be found only in the Philippines with one species (Rafflesia magnifica) already classified as critically endangered. It is a sad truth that conservation activities in the Philippines are at a minimum. Illegal logging and extensive clearing of forests and mountains for land development are steadily dwindling the natural resources of our country, It is my hope that through this mission, we will be at least able to document the existence of a particular plant before is ceases to exist by man's carelessness... It is my prayer that through this, awareness may be spread throughout the entire archipelago and beyond so that we can save as many species as we can before it is too late, For uploaded pictures, please indicate date spotted, the description of the location and elevation (if possible). Once positively identified, please include the conservation status as described by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN): Vulnerable (VU), Endangered (EN), Critically Endangered (CR), and recently Extinct (EX) species, Near Threatened (NT), Data Deficient (DD), and prehistoric species.
