June 4, marks the start of the Philippine Eagle Week

TODAY, June 4, marks the start of the Philippine Eagle Week, an annual celebration that aims to raise public awareness on the vital role of the Philippine Eagle in our forest ecosystem, and as a primary animal species in our campaign to preserve the country’s rich biodiversity.

This 2024 is the 26th year of the Philippine Eagle Week where we pay tribute to a national symbol, a true icon of Philippine biodiversity. With its estimated population of 392 pairs on the archipelago.

With this year’s theme, “Run of Hope: For the Forest and Eagle” the 26th PEW will start with a marathon to be held in Baler, Aurora. The marathon is more than a race, it is a platform where the community comes together to support the noble cause of saving the eagles, thereby promoting a vibrant and joyful one.

The DENR National Capital Region is one of the many organizations, from the public and private sectors, in celebration of the Philippine Eagle Week. Let’s work together in protecting the Philippine Eagle and our forests for now and for future generations.
