In the latest edition of Explore Philippines, we got ourselves into as many unexpected situations as we could while working on this nature-triggered issue, starring actor and outdoorsman @andersongeraldjr on the cover with the picturesque Batanes as the worthy backdrop!

Our “Earth Appreciation” theme continues in our camping story to catch the stars at pitch black night with the Philippine Astronomical Society. We then list down our favorite nature reserves in the country and follow the work of UP’s marine biologists as they study and save aquatic life in our precious seas.
With in-depth features on North Batan, the mystical island of Siquijor, and Waves For Water’s Carlo Delantar, expect this Earth Issue to surprise you with Middle-earthy landscapes, immense wildlife, and forces of nature coming at you from all angles.
Explore Philippines issue #16 will be available at @nbsalert, @powerbooksstore, and @_fullybooked soon. Preorder link on our bio.
