With its goal and mission to disseminate information and education toward the conservation of the country’s vanishing avian treasures, the Wild Bird Photographers of the Philippines (WBPP), in partnership with the Federation of Philippine Photographers Foundation (FPPF) is holding a photo exhibit titled Ibong Malaya: The Philippines’ Avian Treasures. The event, which is held until July 12, 2017 at The Chamber, Fort Santiago in Intramuros, Manila, showcases some of the endemic species of birds in the country.
In cooperation with the Department of Tourism (DoT), the exhibit displays the works of WBPP members and officers including Alain Pascua, Win Paler, Ramon Quisumbing, Tirso Paris, Ven Rojas, Chin Fernandez, Floyd Bermejo, and Anthony Balbin.
Through this special event, WBPP presents its frames with beautiful avian moments that somewhat express its great desire to give something back to the world—taken from some of the group’s trips that captured glimpses of the natural wilderness.
Today, there is one thing that WBPP espouses and declares with untainted passion to support in the preservation of the vanishing avian treasures: “We support without any equivocation.”
The photo exhibit opens at 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., free admission courtesy of Intramuros Administration.
