It is concerned with the conservation and preservation of our natural resources.
This is an organization for individual regardless of race, color, creed, sex, nationality and religion who understands very well the purpose and rigors of mountaineering and exploration as a personal challenge and also as a way of educating and elightening our fellowmen the importance of ecological balance through the various expeditions and research works the organization will undertake.
