Our country is blessed with so many land features such as mountains and volcanoes. These features can be sources of different minerals or can be used for agricultural purposes. For example, we have the majestic and world renowned Mayon Volcano. Because of its activity, it produces fertile slopes and plains which are used by the locals to grow their crops. Also, found in the northeastern coast of Luzon, we have the Sierra Madre mountain range which
is home to many endemic species of flora and fauna.
There are seven relatively large plates and a number of smaller ones, including the Philippine plate. The plates move very slowly but constantly, and this movement is called tectonics; thus the theory of moving lithospheric plates is called plate tectonics. If these plates continue to move, the Philippines will probably be located near the pacific ocean.
