Essentials of Protected Area Management in the Philippines (2000)

Volume 6
  by Struan Simpson and Sahlee Bugna

ISBN: 971-8986-31-6

Protected area management in the Philippines is oftentimes a complex and perilous task, particularly for Rangers, who spend most of their time patrolling and monitoring.  Their duties depend upon the nature of the area, but stem mainly from ensuring territorial integrity, implementing the NIPAS Act and other related policies, and maintaining good relations with local residents and visitors. The primary concern of this manual is to provide Rangers with information that will enhance their performance in the field.  Topics include health, First Aid and hygiene, preparation and planning for safe field operations, monitoring biodiversity, fire prevention and control, and pollution prevention and control
