CAPTURING FLIGHT: A Story about Nina Ingle


Story by Didith T. Rodrigo

Illustrations by George Vincent Bien

Angela Nina Ann Rivera Ingle  is a conservation ecologist based in the Ateneo de Davao University, Davao City. She received her BS in Biology (magna cum laude) from the Ateneo de Manila University in 1985 and her MS and Ph.D. in Natural Resources from Cornell University in 1990 and 2001 respectively. Much of Dr. Ingle’s early work focused on bats. She is well known for her 1992 publication A Key to the Bats of the Philippine Islands, the first publication of its kind that enabled scientists to identify the 70 indigenous bat species then known in the Philippines. Since then, Dr. Ingle has worked with wildlife conservation efforts in different parts of the Philippines, organized national symposia, and led field research courses. Her interests extend from bats and the Philippine eagle, to forests and watersheds and incorporating the natural environment into basic education, especially for those living in, or near, forests. In recognition of Dr. Ingle’s contributions as a conservationist, educator, and researcher, she was given the Biodiversity Emerging Leader Award from the Bay and Paul Foundations for 2005 to 2007 as well as the Parker Gentry Award for Conservation from the Field Museum in Chicago, USA in 2012.
