Chunks of high biodiversity forests in Adams, the last frontier in the North, are part of a protected area (Kalbario-Patapat Natural Park), a critical habitat (Adams Wildlife Critical Habitat) and the proposed Northern Ilocos Norte Natural Park (assessed during the time of President Corazon Aquino and still pending approval). Word is getting around, a ZOO enterprise, which entails locking up animals, is being considered in Adams.
The Animal Welfare Act states: It shall be the duty of every person to protect the natural habitat of the wildlife. Destruction of said habitat shall be considered as a form of cruelty to animals and its preservation is a way of protecting the animals. Neither is it lawful to introduce exotic species or man-made factors that will affect the existence of wildlife, according to the Wildlife Resources Conservation and Protection Act.
Please oppose whatever project that will compromise the welfare of the last remaining natural habitats in the North. No to lock up of animals! Please pass the word around.
