In observance of the Philippine Eagle Week (PEW) celebrated from June 4 to 10, anchoring this year’s theme “Kapayapaan at Kalayaan: Ang Agila at Mamamayan may Kaugnayan”, the DENR PENRO Cavite through the Protected Area and Biodiversity Unit (PABU) organized an environmental lecture highlighting the Philippine Eagle. It was held at Trece Martires City National High School (TMCNHS) on 06 June 2022.
Twenty (20) senior high school students who are also members of the Youth for Environment in Schools-Organization (YES-O) actively participated in the environmental lecture.
