ABS-CBN'S BANTAY KALIKASAN JOINS INTERNATIONAL FLORA AND FAUNA EXPO
Bantay Kalikasan (BK) recently participated in the first Philippine International Flora and Fauna Garden Expo at the World Trade Center in Manila.
BK was given a booth to showcase its different projects to the expo's visitors. Other booths also presented creative exhibits such as Avilon Zoo, Earth Garden, Pagcor and other companies.
The World Trade Center turned into a virtual jungle as the exhibit showcased many animals and plants.
RPN Flora and Fauna organized the event, which had DENR Secretary Lito Atienza and Las Piñas Congresswoman Cynthia Villar as guest speakers.
Atienza witnessed the booth presentation of Bantay Kalikasan and was amazed to see the big improvement of La Mesa Forest from a denuded piece of land back to a thriving area.
Most of the visitors of the exhibit were students from different schools. They were also amazed by the significant transformation of La Mesa and wanted to know about other projects of Bantay Kalikasan.
They were given brochures of BK’s projects such as La Mesa, Eco Park packages, Bantay Baterya, Bantay Langis and H2hope.
Most of them were particularly eager to learn more about the activities done by Bantay Baterya and Bantay Langis.
Filipino inventors also participated in the event. They demonstrated their innovative self-made gadgets to the guests.
Cookers with no LPG required, electricity-saving appliances, herbal medicines that can cure diseases, organic food and herbal beauty products were some of the innovations that the inventors offered to the guests during the exhibit.
The organizers were happy with the positive response of the public, which was helped by Bantay Kalikasan's efforts to promote the event.
They plan to hold another exhibit next year, again with the participation of Bantay Kalikasan.
