DENR 10 CELEBRATES WORLD WILDLIFE DAY

To spearhead the campaign in educating the youth on the importance of wildlife, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Region 10 (DENR 10) through its Protected Area Management and Biodiversity Conservation Section (PAMBCS) conducted a symposium on March 2, 2018 in Cagayan de Oro City.

The symposium was attended by selected students of Macabalan National High School. The activity is in observance of the World Wildlife Day which is celebrated globally every March 3, the day when the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) was adopted in 1973. The theme for this year’s celebration is “Big cats: predators under threat.”

This year’s celebration focused on big cats – Lions, Tigers, Leopards and Jaguars as well as their smaller cousins such as Cheetahs, Snow Leopards and Pumas, who are facing many different threats, most of which are caused by human activities. According to SeeTheWild Organization, roughly 80 percent of the 40 wild cat species are shrinking and sixteen of them are considered vulnerable, endangered, or critically endangered.

In his lecture, Ranoray Love A. Noro, Chief of PAMBCS reiterates that wildlife is important for their roles in preserving the balance of nature in the ecosystem where they belong. He also presented the threats to wildlife which includes illegal trade and habitat destruction.

The students also learned about Republic Act 9147 or the Wildlife Resources Conservation and Protection Act of 2001, an act providing for the conservation and protection of wildlife resources and their habitats. They also had a chance to visit the Regional Rescue Center inside the DENR 10 compound where they encountered real wild animals like the Philippine Hawk Eagle, the Python and the Cobra.

Noro gave emphasis on teaching the youth the importance of conserving and preserving biodiversity, including wildlife, because the youth will be next in line in the stewardship of our mother Earth. Ana Mae Sumalinog (RPAO MR No. 03-57-2018)
