More than ever, concern for Philippine wetlands has been on the high. With more and more advocacy groups – from birders, to environmentalists, to marine experts, and grassroots communities, there is an urgent need for unity amongst like-minded cause-oriented individuals and groups in raising the level of awareness and conservation for the wetlands in our country.
What better way to do it than have a festival about it? Mixing serious discussions with solidarity and action, and calling on the younger generation to act.
Wild for Wetlands: The Philippine Wetlands Fair 2017 is a prelude to a bigger festival. It is to jumpstart an initiative towards the First Philippine Wetlands Festival on 2018. The fair focuses on uniting advocates and ecowarriors for the protection of PH Wetlands.
