How Would You Protect the Philippine Forests?

The Philippines has always been known as a country filled with beautiful forests and landscapes. However, since 1960, we have lost a little more than 6 million hectares of forest area from our original 12 million hectares. To put it into perspective, SM Megamall sits on approximately 10 hectares of land. We’ve lost about 600,000 Megamalls-worth of forest space! Yikes! Thankfully, all is not lost. Change can still come if you begin taking action. You have one home, and it’s up to you to protect it. You’re not alone though, you’ve got your tribe with you.  

Take this quiz to find out who your forest avatar is, and which tribe they belong to!
