The Philippines’ eagle protection program is being aided by DMCI Homes through the Philippine Eagle Foundation amid the pandemic.
Knowing that wildlife conservation work must go uninterrupted even during a pandemic, DMCI Homes recently donated boxes of quarantine and maintenance supplies to the Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF) in Davao City to help its facility sustain its day-to-day needs.
DMCI Homes made the donation in response to PEF’s call for support from the public as its Philippine Eagle Center facility in Malagos, Baguio District remains closed to visitors because of the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic.
Among the items donated by DMCI Homes through its Kaakbay ng Kalikasan Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative were insect sprays, soaps, detergent powders, bleaches, multipurpose cleaners, hand sanitizers, toilet cleaners, and bathroom tissues.
Rodel Prado, Property Manager of DMCI Homes’ Davao condominium project, Verdon Parc, led the turnover of the donations last July 22, 2020.
“More than ever, our wildlife conservation centers need all our support so they can continue their admirable work in this difficult period,” Prado said.
“As part of the Davao community, we hope to be of help to the PEF in providing care for our Philippine Eagles and all animals in their facility,” he added.
According to the PEF, the 8.4-hectare Philippine Eagle Center is currently home to 31 Philippine Eagles and other animal species. To learn how to donate to the PEF, visit this site.

Philippine Eagle Makilala Hiraya was recently safely returned to her home forest.
In June 2019, then 15-year-old male Philippine Eagle named Geothermica and partner 17-year-old Sambisig were sent to Jurong Bird Park managed by the Wildlife Reserves Singapore for conservation.
