Pawikan conservation area in Badoc proposed

Owing to a series of marine sea turtles caught by fishermen and later on released back to sea, fishery and environment officials here proposed the creation of a pawikan conservation area in this coastal town.

The Pawikan conservation area, once declared in Badoc town through an ordinance, would ensure the protection and safety of endangered marine sea turtles considered as endangered species due to small population noted due to illegal catching, butchering and egg collection practice of people in fishing villages. For some, they consider this as a delicacy.
