Jayson Ibanez


Jayson Ibanez joined the Research Institute for the Environment and Livelihoods (formerly School of Environmental Research) in 2010 as a PhD student investigating the integration of ‘Indigenous Ecological Knowledge’ and ‘Western Science’ in Indigenous planning.

Outside of the academia, he is a biologist (on leave) with the Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF), a conservation NGO based in Davao City, Mindanao, Philippines. His work at PEF includes research on the behaviour, ecology, and reintroduction of the IUCN ‘critically endangered’ Philippine Eagle Pithecophaga jefferyi, his country’s national bird.  For the past few years, he is also involved with community-based conservation on Mindanao Island.  

Beyond his profession, he enjoys life with family: his wife 'Bing' (a Human Ecologist), daughters 'Sofia' (13) and 'Safina' (2), and son 'Luis' (7).
