Endangered ‘Pawikan’ Gets Protection

The Philippines is home to five out of seven species of sea turtles or pawikan that can be found in the world. Sea turtles play an important role in keeping the oceans healthy by nourishing seagrass beds and coral reefs. However, as human activity increases, sea turtle populations have become endangered. Guided by their vision of creating better ways to live, AboitizLand, the real estate arm of the Aboitiz Group, believes that nature and its inhabitants must be protected to promote good quality of life for all. The developer, therefore, initiated a Pawikan Conservation Project together with Aboitiz Foundation and UP Diliman Environmental Science experts.
