My work led me to the ASEAN Center for Biodiversity (ACB) in Los Baños, the Philippines. It is located on the campus of the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB). The campus lies just below Mount Makiling Forest Reserve, an ASEAN Heritage Park. While the campus clearly is a used and inhabited area, it has forest and park landscape elements, and at least two creeks run through the area. Via the main gate of the university one enters the campus and can walk up a winding road that passes by the Makiling Botanical Gardens and brings you to the entrance of the forest reserve. The road continues and passes by the Mud Spring and onwards to the summit. The photos in this post are shot in the campus area or in the botanical garden.
