Mt. Ipus

One of the highlights of learning the principles of environmental conservation in the classroom is to be able to apply it in actual practice in the field.

This is what the students of Environmental Biology and Ecology did under the supervision of Dr. Arnold Fonollera and other Ecology professors from the Biological Sciences Department last October 24-25, 2017.

The students and faculty members who participated in the event braved the rain-soaked slopes of Mount Ipus, one of the low-lying peaks in the rolling hills of Maragondon, Cavite and planted narra seedlings in areas designated for reforestations.

This activity was a joint undertaking between DLSU-D and DENR-Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office in Cavite to conserve and protect the remaining forests in the province of Cavite. This activity was undertaken for the sustainable development and benefit of the present and future generations. The 2-day activity also involved the participation of around 300 non-Biology major students from CBA, CLAC and CTHM.
