An adventure race was organized by Mga Bayani ng Kalikasan (MBNK) and the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA). It is another recent event of Smart Communications Inc. (Smart). Mt. Natib Flora Adventure Hunt was a 40-kilometer voyage from the Sinagtala Resort in Tala, Orani going to Bataan Technology Park in Morong. Smart provided cellphones and connectivity to the residents of Mt. Natib in Bataan.

On the 1st day, the race includes 17 four-man teams who will search and capture images of the various plant species which could be found in Mt. Natib. The event was inspired by the book of Dr. Leonard Co entitled Pictorial Guide to the Plants at the Bataan National Park. With the use of Flora Adventure Buddy, an Android application developed by WideOut Technology Services Inc., the Smart-powered Samsung Galaxy Y will inevitably registered the species captured using the cellphone.

On the 2nd day, a tree planting activity happened at the kaingin area of Mt. Natib. It was followed by trail-running race which started at the base camp and ended at the Bataan Technology Park. Smart honors the contribution to the event of the country’s best botanist, late Dr. Co. The appreciative articles written by Dr. Co had proved that he really care and support the country’s natural resources. Smart had helped in promoting Mt. Natib’s Natural Park as an example of environmental protection and eco-tourism, also to remember the great works of Dr. Co. [via philstar.com]
