Overview of TAMIU PhilSAP
By Jann Albadier & Kitch Gogolin

The delegates from Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) is currently venturing in the Philippines for their Philippine Study Abroad Program (PhilSAP). Most of the ten students are biology majors and have come to explore biodiversity in the tropical country as an advanced elective. Some of them are non-majors, with degree programs such as kinesiology and sociology and have joined PhilSAP out of interest and enthu...siasm. The batch is led by two professors, Dr. Marcus and Ruby Ynalvez to discuss Social Issues in the Tropics and Exploring Biology in the Tropics respectively. Their study abroad program covers the months of June and July.

With the assistance of the UPLB Museum of Natural History (MNH), the delegates are scheduled for four fieldworks within the month of June.

The first one was already conducted last June 13 at the UPLB upper campus. Led by University Researcher Michelle Alejado and Assistant Professor and Curator Annalee Hadsall, the ten students were introduced to different methods in vegetational analysis and procedures in specimen preservation.

The second fieldwork was held last June 16-18 at Puerto Galera, Mindoro to observe various island ecosystems. This was assisted by marine biologist Julius Parcon with the MNH director, Juan Carlos Gonzalez.

The next fieldwork was held at Pangasinan from June 21-25 as an additional learning experience in the Bolinao Marine Laboratory, the Mangrove area and Hundred Islands National Park of Alaminos City. The delegates also visited the Cacupangan Cave System, in Mabini, for exploration and was led by Jerry Rendon along with four cavers from Balincaguin Conservancy.

The last fieldwork will be done at Mt. Makiling, Camp Tayabak from June 30-July 1 for a night observation of the caves.

A day after permission was granted to BC by the LGU to further explore Bani's coastal caving area and the communal forest, we ridgewalked and found two caves. One of which could be a sink to Angel Cave.

Angel Cave maps and Google Earth overlays has been presented to Mayor Gwen Palafox-Yamamoto and Municipal Planning and Development Officer Rodel Quibayen primarily as baseline data for land and cave management plans. Permission to re-survey Nalsoc Cave System and further exploration of Bani's caving area including the municipality's communal forest has also been granted to BC.
