DENR-7 joins the 2018 World Wildlife Day

In celebration of the 2018 World Wildlife Day, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) 7 through its Conservation and Development Division (CDD) partnered with MLhuillier for the conduct of an exposure visit at the Cebu Safari and Adventure Park in Carmen, Cebu.

Led by Cebu Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officer Cleo Cary Colis, the activity attended by around 100 DENR personnel was aimed to promote protection of wildlife species in the Philipppines.

"Public awareness is very important in order for us to make informed decisions as we continue to pursue countryside development. We all have to realize that protection of the wildlife and their habitats should be one of the major considerations," said PENRO Cleo Cary Colis.

He added that protection of the wildlife may be ensured with the strong participation and involvement of the public. He urged everyone to report illegal wildlife trade.

The World Wildlife Day was globally celebrated on March 3, the day the landmark Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) was adopted in 1973. This year’s theme is “Big cats: predators under threat.”
