“Wildlife is important to maintaining balance in our ecosystem; without plants and animals, the fragile circle of life would be affected,” Mayor Evelio Leonardia for his part, said.

Vice-Mayor El Cid Familiaran, meanwhile, pointed out the need for more information dissemination among citizens about the need for wildlife protection.

Leonardia added: “We all have to do our share in preserving the environment. This is not only the right thing to do, it is key to our survival as a species, as a race. Without wildlife, the Earth will die and we along with it.”
