Conservation storyteller Celine Murillo introduces Philippine native trees and discusses how these trees can solve the triple ecological crises of pollution, biodiversity loss, and climate change.

@celinemurillo_ Replying to @spinel 💔🥀 This year’s Earth Day theme is “Invest in Our Planet” and what better way to do that than by making sure that environmental stewardship is nourished and cultivated in schools. One way to do this is to make exposure to Philippine biodiversity mandatory in all levels of education. For example, more lessons on Philippine Native Trees – an important nature-based solution to the triple ecological crises of pollution, biodiversity loss, and climate change! We protect what we love and we only love what we know. Make everyday #EarthDay ♬ Pasilyo - SunKissed Lola
