Forty Indigenous forest guards, 26 males and 14 females, took turns tracking the bird as he explored the group's ancient forests.

I was in a bus when I chanced upon a giant tarpaulin hanging inside the usually crowded Ecoland Terminal in Davao City yesterday. It's a promotional material for "Davao: Life is Here" series used by the city government. Set against a setting sun, the peak of Mt. Apo offers a picture of serenity even in a printed material. An imposing text completes the ad: "Mother Nature's tallest grandchild: the Apo."
