NIBE 2012



The Negros Interior Biodiversity Expedition (NIBE) 2012 saw a team of biodiversity scientists explore the interior of the North Negros Natural Park on Negros Island in the Philippines. Building on the successful pioneering expedition in 2009, which established the ‘route in’ the team undertook a more detailed biological exploration of an area famed for both endemism and endangerment. Self sufficient and operating in difficult conditions the joint International-Filipino team went further, with more scientists, to better document the value of this unique environment.
