Research


Research activities spanning all the sciences that can systematically help us explore Masungi’s sense of place and identity are welcome. These kinds of research enable us to further understand the karst landscape that we exist on and provide deepened insight on how we can protect it and coexist with all life forms that live on it.

We also welcome international and local  research and knowledge-sharing that can promote effective conservation practices yet to be mainstreamed in the Philippines particularly in the areas of conserved areas (as defined by IUCN), privately-managed conservation (as defined by IUCN), developments for conservation, and sustainable development. We rely on know how from other parts of the world and contributions by the science community in the country for our practices in Masungi Georeserve.

 

Please reach us at trail@masungigeoreserve.com for any proposals and initiative and include pertinent information.
