“Globe is committed to the protection, preservation, and conservation of our environment. That is why we conduct the annual Globe Cordillera Challenge to help preserve the Cordillera mountain ecosystem as well as the Globe Adventure Taal for Clean Water, a drive to save Taal Lake from water pollution. We continue to look for similar environmentally critical areas to support and found it in Arakan, the home of the Philippine Eagle, ” said Globe CSR Head Rob Nazal.
Meanwhile, PEF Executive Director Dennis Salvador said: “PEF firmly believes that the fate of our vanishing Philippine Eagle, the health of our environment, and the quality of Philippine life are inextricably linked. We are, therefore, committed to promote the survival of the Philippine Eagle, the biodiversity it represents, and the sustainable use of our forest resources for future generations to enjoy.”
Sinaka and Mahuson are where two wild pairs of Philippine eagles have been breeding at lease since 1992.
Likewise, Sinaka is regarded as one of the world’s important bird areas due to the relatively high proportion of unique threatened birds it contains. Mahuson also has a unique mammalian assemblage as exemplified by the existence of the Philippine large-headed fruit bat.
On top of Globe's donation P400,000 to PEF, the company has also recently held the Globe Arakan XC (cross-country), a 55-kilometer biking event for the benefit of PEF.
