28 June 2022, Laguna Quezon Land Grant, Siniloan, Laguna. On May 5th, Jessica Deluca reached out to FEED by email to inquire whether she could “adopt seedlings and join a tree planting activity between 2nd to 3rd week of July 2022”, in celebration of her birthday on July 15th.
Joining the Students and Volunteers for the Environment (SAVE) Climate Change Action Program, she decided to adopt 10 native Philippine trees, contribute partially to the FEED Scholarship Fund for deserving and marginalized Philippine scholars studying environmental sciences, and to the forest guardians meals for their daily security treks around the over 9,000 hectares of preserved forest at the Laguna Quezon Land Grant managed by FEED’s longest Living Legacy partner, the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB).
Thank you Jessica, May the Forest be with you Always!

NATURE IS SPEAKING (Narrated by Julia Roberts)
What can I do to stop climate change?
“As the world warms, extreme weather events are becoming more frequent and intense, sea levels are rising, prolonged droughts are putting pressure on food crops, and many animal and plant species are being driven to extinction. It’s hard to imagine what we as individuals can do to resolve a problem of this scale and severity.
The good news: We are not alone. People, communities, cities, businesses, schools, faith groups and other organizations are taking action. We’re fighting like our lives depend on it — because they do.
In a world of more than seven billion people, each of us is a drop in the bucket. But with enough drops, we can fill any bucket.” – David Suzuki

In 2015, the Philippine government submitted to the United Nations the country’s commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The country committed to reduce its carbon emissions by 70 percent by 2030. The carbon dioxide reductions will come from the sectors of energy, transport, waste, forestry and industry. Join us! Help us reverse the Earth’s “hothouse climate” tipping point.
