If I may just provide input, at the height of Wiki Loves Monuments
Philippines, we received a phone call from Natural Wonders Foundation
(Philippines) about a proposal that they would like to launch a similar
project like Wiki Loves Monuments, in this case featuring the natural
beauty of the country. I informed them that we are very interested about
it, we may just need to discuss it after WLM international has completely
wrapped-up, by then we would have finished our documentation. Though in the
hindsight we are looking at Cultural mapping activities, because unlike
most countries, heritage is often neglected in our country, so we better
start going around photographing and documenting it.
