Isarog Natural Park as a Biosphere Reserve as Peter Dogse (extreme left) of UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) also observes. A biosphere reserve is a protected area which aims to conserve genetic resources, species and ecosystems to serve as a venue for scientific research, monitoring and promotion of sustainable development. As of to date, Palawan and Puerto Galera are the only declared biosphere reserves in the country.
