PIFGEX 2010 poster

We endeavor to bring together and educate people about the Philippine’s natural beauty, its rich yet fragile biodiversity, its endearing culture and also, its unique products.

PIFGEX is the first event that has brought together both government and private industry. It is one of the major projects that RPN Flora and Fauna Inc. organizes annually.

year’s event gave an opportunity for companies, government and private groups to exhibit their products and ideas to the greater public and to special targeted groups. In past shows we have offered exhibitors a chance to talk and make presentations about their products, ideas or services. We also have special interest areas set aside such as live animal displays and provide some exhibitors a display area in the front of the venue as a secondary showcase area. This has been a very successful format allowing exhibitors to introduce new and current products in the market place. Our media partners like Manila Bulletin, Philippine Daily Star, Philippine Daily Inquirer, Business Mirror and Business World has also extended their help and support by way of reaching our intended audience.

The exposition will also be attended by representative exhibitors from different regions of the Philippines. The participation and great contributions of these regions, through the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), helps to accentuate the issue of environmental awareness, as well as share visuals and informations about their place and their industries.

It is  a collaboration of major and developing companies, NGO’s and the government sector to elevate public awareness about what we have to offer, and how our companies and groups are doing their part in the urgent call to revive our land and our planet and in caring for our country’s resources. Together we can make this a crusade and our personal commitment to our country and the environment. Recent calamities have shown we need to take a more proactive role in environmental protection wherein each individual can play their part. Education is an important part of this process and PIFGEX is the only trade show that addresses this important concern.

RPN Flora and Fauna Inc. will continue to improve and innovate in future shows giving exhibitors a chance to discuss and introduce new products and ideas that could contribute to the greening of our country, and reduce industrial and consumer wastes.

Proceeds from the event will be used to fund all expeditions that RPN Flora and Fauna Inc. has been organizing for the research, survey, documentation and eventually, the creation of books that will showcase the flora and fauna of the Philippines from the Batanes group of islands up to the island of Tawi-Tawi.  Let us all become a part of this urgent and worthwhile project that is of great help in upbringing further interest to study and preserve our wildlife and our country as a whole.

Asean launches International Year of Biodiversity 2010

2010 International Year of Biodiversity  logo and theme

Hosted by the ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity (ACB) and the Philippines’ Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), the event was part of the global celebration aimed at raising public awareness of the importance of biodiversity and the consequences of its loss. The celebration’s theme is “Biodiversity is life.  Biodiversity is our life.”

At the launch, the ASEAN Deputy Secretary-General awarded the ASEAN Heritage Parks certificate to the Philippines recognizing the Mount Kitanglad Range Natural Park in Mindanao as the 28th and newest ASEAN Heritage Park in Southeast Asia. The award was received on behalf of the Philippine government by DENR Undersecretary Ignacio and senior DENR officials from Mindanao.

Undersecretary Ignacio said that “with this recognition, the Philippines is now home to three ASEAN Heritage ParksMt. Apo Natural Park in Davao, Mt. Iglit-Baco in Mindoro, and now, Mt. Kitanglad in Bukidnon. This reinforces the fact that despite its relatively small size, our country is home to an astonishing range of biodiversity. The Philippines stands out in the region in terms of richness of biodiversity as it cradles a treasure trove of plant, bird, marine, insect and other animal species.”

The launch of the International Year of Biodiversity also featured the formal call for nominations for ASEAN Champions of Biodiversity—a recognition program that will award outstanding biodiversity conservation and advocacy projects by corporations, youth and the media.

ACB and the Protected Areas and Wildlife Bureau presented the ASEAN Regional Clearing-House Mechanism and the Philippine Clearing-House Mechanism, which are both aimed at building strong biodiversity information sharing networks.
