    Jose Rizal-->

    Have you ever heard of the Draco rizali, Apogania rizali, or the Rhacophorus rizali?In case you haven’t, well hey are the scientific names of animals and insects which our National Hero Jose Rizal discovered – yes, discovered – during his

    exile in Dapitan. The naming of these fauna after their iscover is the greatest tribute to Rizal’s scientific endeavors and expertise. Rizal venerated almost solely for helping form a national consciousness and for fighting for reforms in the Spanish rulers governance in the hope for a better life for his people. Unfortunately, his scientific accomplishments largely remain in the shadow of his writings, travels, supposed amorous affairs, and of course, martyrdom. Aside from having been a linguist who mastered five languages, a prolific writer

    of numerous essays, letters, poems, and two novels, and a stubborn nationalist who died for what he believed in, Rizal early on displayed intellectual capabilities in the sciences as well.
