Project FOREST: Ang Mahiwagang Kabakawan ng Cabayugan

“Ang Mahiwagang Kabakawan ng Cabayugan” introduces young readers to Mira and Lola Marina, an adorable granddaughter and grandmother duo, as they explore the magical mangrove forest of Barangay Cabayugan in the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park (PPSRNP). Like many locals, they depend on the mangroves for ecotourism, food, coastal protection, and more. However, a climate crisis-driven super typhoon strikes and wipes out many of their mangroves. Will they be able to restore this ecosystem and secure their future?

Developed in partnership with Ekomunikatib Multimedia Consultancy Services, our grantee, through USAID’s Sustainable Interventions for Biodiversity, Oceans and Landscapes (SIBOL) initiative, Project FOREST aims to cultivate a deep awareness of forest conservation among elementary school students in the PPSRNP through conservation storytelling.
