We want to share so that you will care!
Aside from flat out terrible puns, the Institute of Biology of the University of the Philippines Diliman hosts collections of images, videos, and specimens on Philippine Biodiversity. Since the Philippines sits at the heart of the Coral Triangle, the world's center of marine biodiversity, the assemblage of data on its marine life is, to say the least, (a)vast!
We at the Jonathan Anticamara lab group would like to share our data online with students and researchers alike in the hopes of advancing knowledge on the country's uniquely diverse marine treasures. As a byproduct, we hope to spark the impetus to preserve these treasures for generations to come.
