The virtual event of the Palawan Council for Sustainable Development (PCSD) was streamed on Facebook Live. The PCSD named the virtual event as the Palawan Kiddie and Youth Wildlife Saver's Club Virtual Event 2021 with a theme:” Be Better and Consistent: Sustainable Development for Young Audience" wherein the importance of the creatures and various species of animals that are endemic in the island, the 10R’s for the environment, and the Strategic Environmental Law for Palawan (SEP) Act or Republic Act 7611.

The event was hosted by Ms. Kishia Hardiolen from PCSDS, Ms. Darlyn Coroña from Zoological Society of London - Philippines and Mr. Edilberto Magpayo from the Tandikan Program of Pilipinas Shell Foundation Incorporated that was held on April 27, 2021, that lasted an hour.

Mr. Magpayo talked about his Zero Waste advocacy. He stated that “Kaya naman nating mabuhay ng walang basura at sa katunayan to po ay ginagampanan ko ng papel sa ngayon. Ang ating advocacy dahil ayaw ni Princesa na single-use plastic, ay kaya po naman nating gawin. Kaya nating isabuhay at isagawa ang mga bagay-bagay na makakabawas sa mga basura kung talagang dibdibin at isapuso. Kaya po natin mawala ang basura, kaya po nating mabuhay na walang basura lalo na kung tayo ay magiging malikhain at mapamaraan.”

He also explained the 10R’s (Respect, Responsible, Reuse, Recycle, Reduce, Recover, Refuse/React, Rott, Restore and Rejoice). According to him, applying for these 10R’s is challenging, especially the Refuse but we can overcome this by being reactive and helping conserve the environment. Also, to achieve the Zero Waste advocacy.

Palawan is rich in natural and man-made attractions. It is also a home of animal species that are only endemic on the island, one of them is the Philippine Pangolins or locally known as “Balintong”. In the Philippines, pangolins can only be found in Palawan island and other several species. But, sad to say that pangolins were illegally sold in black markets for their scales, meat, and use as a traditional medicine in other countries. The Pangolins roll over when they feel harm and are only active at night (nocturnal) by their characteristic cannot help them to get away with poachers or illegal traders. They are fed on ants and termites.

Ms. Darlyn Coroña from Zoological Society of London (ZSL) - Philippines tackled their Pangolin Conservation Initiative to help protect the species of pangolins in the world.

On the other hand, Ms. Kishia Hardiolen from PCSDS talked about the strategic Environmental Law for Palawan Act or Republic Act 7611 which provides for the adoption of a comprehensive framework for the sustainable development of Palawan, compatible with protecting and enhancing the natural resources and endangered environment of the province. The PCSD aims at environmental conservation and inclusive development in Palawan, a biosphere reserve and science-for-sustainability site, guided by the Strategic Environmental Plan.
