FG Hydro Discovers the Rafflesia of the Philippines

The Rafflesia consueloae is a critically-endangered species of Rafflesia unique to the Philippines, discovered by University of the Philippines biologists near the Pantabangan-Masiway Hydroelectric Complex, thanks to a biodiversity monitoring program conducted with FG Hydro.

The rare flower was discovered—and so far, has only been found—near FG Hydro’s area of operations in Nueva Ecija. It was then named after Consuelo “Connie” Rufino Lopez, FPH Chairman Emeritus Oscar M. Lopez’ wife and First Gen Chairman and CEO Federico R. Lopez’ mother. Though the Rafflesia is the largest bloom in the world, FG Hydro’s Rafflesia is the smallest of its species, making it utterly unique.

The flower is a symbol of the Lopez Group’s thrust on environmental responsibility, and it would not have been discovered if not for FG Hydro’s commitment to biodiversity conservation. It is just one of the many species endemic to the country and found within the Company’s areas of operations and responsibility that we continue to protect.
