What We Do
The world is continuously changing. And this inevitable nature calls for innovations that are tailor-fitted with contemporary biodiversity and conservation challenges. CCIPH applies a fresh look towards biodiversity issues and challenges in crafting solutions for these problems. We maintain a conservation laboratory where proven and tested homegrown technology-based solutions are scaled up, to maximize biodiversity impacts. We design cutting-edge technologies that brings about increased grassroots participation with the aid of necessary trainings and skills enhancement.
Our meaningful experience in working with the grassroot community is a testament of the efficacy of the participatory approach in contributing to conservation success. CCIPH believes that for the longevity of a successful conservation project, community empowerment is essential. Our conservation programs are initiated and participated by local conservation leaders. CCIPH seeks to empower individuals from the locality by transferring sufficient skills and knowledge to them which in turn will benefit the project and community in the long run. We also actively seek out and collaborate with conservation practitioners and leaders in address pressing biodiversity issues within their environment.
It is undeniable that biodiversity is one of the critical building blocks of an ecosystem; therefore, its protection is a priority. CCIPH strongly believes that biodiversity is a critical barometer of the future of the next generation. Our species and habitat protection program highlights ambassador species representing a conservation umbrella that will cover larger geographical and ecological bounds. We prioritize critically endangered species and fragile ecosystems in the development of species conservation and recovery plans.
Biodiversity conservation and protection initiatives leading to change are basically geared towards the state of sustainability. CCIPH envisions a society where people respect and gives utmost importance to the various flora and fauna and their habitats. We understand that the private and business sectors are important components in providing livelihood for the general public. So, we guide them in contributing to the biodiversity conservation and protection movement by helping them change and improve business processes that result to net loss on biodiversity. We assess fragile species and ecosystems affected by businesses and use these as benchmarks in the development of mitigation plans and projects focusing on minimizing risks and eliminating biodiversity loss.
CCIPH hatched the idea for PROJECT CoNNECT, which stands for Coping with the New Normal: Enhanced Connectivity Tools for Iraya Mangyan of San Teodoro, Oriental Mindoro, last September 2020 to directly address and resolve the Iraya Mangyans’ struggles in coping up and learning how to manage the ‘new normal’ in the time of COVID-19.Read More
The Victoria-Anepahan Mountain Range (VAMR) in Palawan boasts of unparalleled biodiversity, an astonishing array of unique species, and a widely intact ecosystem. VAMR lies between two high-value conservation areas, the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park and Mount Mantalingahan Protected Landscape. Unfortunately, VAMR does not enjoy the same level of protection afforded to those neighboring sites.Read More

Green Assessments Launched
Before proper rehabilitation and restoration of SIBOL sites in the country can take place, appropriate ‘green assessments’ activities need to happen first. And no place is more fitting to kick off this massive undertaking than in Puerto Princesa, Palawan which houses the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park (PPSRNP) and Cleopatra’s Needle Forest Reserve.Read More
