Palawan Youth Forum on Crocodile Conservation

The forum will serve as a venue for the student leaders in Palawan to discuss the ongoing major threats to crocodiles-from habitat conversion, over-exploitation to illicit wildlife trafficking.  The forum aims to: (1) strengthen knowledge and awareness of the youth on biology, ecology and importance of crocodiles; (2) create youth advocacy campaign addressing crocodile conservation and human coexistence to reduce conflict; and, (4) direct  the engagement and integration of youth advocacy in public decision making towards crocodile conservation in the Province of Palawan. It will be participated in by senior high school students from public and private schools in Palawan and members of the Palawan Council Sustainable Development Staff (PCSDS) Kiddy Saver’s Club.

The one-day forum is being organized by the Crocodylus Porosus Philippines, Incorporated (CPPI) in coordination with the DENR-Provincial Environment Natural Resources  Office in Palawan.  CPPI is an active and strong partner of the Philippine government in the conservation of crocodilian species and in promoting the sustainable use of Indo-Pacific Crocodile or Saltwater Crocodile.
