This Philippine Independence day on June 12, 2015, the Philippine Eagle Foundation, in partnership with Globe Business, will release “Pamana”, a Philippine Money Eating Eagle, back into the wild in Mt. Hamiguitan Range, Davao Oriental.
“Pamana” was retrieved in Iligan City last 2012 and turned over to the PEF after suffering two gunshot wounds. It was treated until full recovery for 3 years.
“For an endangered species like the Philippine Eagle, every individual counts. Thus, the ultimate goal of our rescue and rehabilitation is to eventually release them back in the wild where they belong. These released raptors will help augment wild populations by replacing old and dying individuals. Pamana’s reintroduction to the area will hopefully contribute to increasing and improving its population once it finds its mate and breeds” PEF Director Dennis Salvador pointed out.
Acosta confirmed that this year, Globe Business will continue its support to PEF though an additional Php 500,000 grant to ensure that Philippine eagles like Pamana can be card for and eventually set free in the wild.
In addition to support the advocacy of PEF, donations may be coursed through Globe Rewards points of 100, 50, 20, 10, and 5 by texting DONATE <SPACE> PAMANA <amount> and send to 4438. You can also donate through Gcash: dial *143#, select GCash in the menu, (key-in “10”, and press “Send”), select “more”, select “Donate”, and enter the amount to be donated, enter MPIN, select “More”, select “PEF” as the chosen charity”.
Let the Philippine eagle soar high again in the Philippine skies!
