  MEMBER PROFILE  

Haribon Foundation for the Conservation of Natural Resources

Established in 1972, the Haribon Foundation is today regarded as a pioneer of the environmental movement and one of the most active environmental organizations in the Philippines. In 1984, it was registered as a science and research foundation conducting floral and faunal studies and is accredited by the Department of Science and Technology. It is also accredited with the DENR and the USAID as private voluntary organization.

Known as Haribon for short, the name refers to the endangered Philippine Eagle and the organization has its roots as a birdwatching society. The name has been retained despite the broadening of the mission, because the critical status of the Philippine Eagle symbolizes the environmental state of the country.

In the pursuit of conservation through community-based resource management, Haribon adopts an integrated, multi- disciplinary approach that is participatory and scientifically sound. Its programs include science and research, community-based resource management, environmental defense and membership development.

Haribon is a member of the World Conservation Union (IUCN) and collaborates with international organizations such as Greenpeace, the Wild Bird Society of Japan, Ocean Voice International, World Wide Fund for Nature and BirdLife International. It maintains a strong network with local environmental groups such as the Green Forum and is a member of the Board of Trustees of the NGOs for Protected Areas (NIPA).
