|Philippine Eagle Week 2012|
The Philippine Eagle Week is celebrated nationwide every June 4-10 of each calendar year. This year’s theme, “LIPAD AGILA…SULONG PINOY” symbolizes the Filipinos’ tenacity and resilience in overcoming the odds to achieve its goals soaring high amidst all adversaries.
Various forms of information and education campaigns have been lined up for the 2012 PEW’s festivities to create awareness about the importance of conserving the iconic Philippine eagle and the environment at large. A mobile infovan, “Harivan” will showcase various informative materials such as videos, brochures, CDs on the ecology and biology of this magnificent bird of prey. A wide assortment of tarpaulins and posters will be hung in strategic areas of the metropolis and major thoroughfares nationwide, academic institutions as well as the “Pahayagang Bayan” along the EDSA MRT stations, including conservation education campaigns in selected schools upon the resumption of classes.
As part of its advocacy program “Caring for the People to Care for the Environment”, the PAWB-Philippine Raptors Conservation Program (PRCP), will also conduct an education campaign tour in Eastern Samar coupled with a medical and dental mission..
