The Philippines is mostly mountainous with narrow coastal lowlands.  Much of the land used to be covered by rainforest but illegal logging has reduced that to only 10% of the land.  These forests are home to many tribal groups as well as hundreds of species of birds, and thousands of different types of plants, flowers and orchids.

These islands are all prone to earthquakes and contain many active volcanoes, some of which are currently in danger if erupting.  The highest peak in Philippines is Mount Apo on Mindanao Island.
