The USAID Protect Wildlife project officially turned over sets of boots, backpacks, tents, hammocks, raincoats, tablets and first aid kits to Palawan Council for Sustainable Development (PCSD) and Bantay Palawan Task Force as part of its continuing support for enhanced wildlife law enforcement in the province.

U.S. Embassy in the Philippines Deputy Chief of Mission John Law graced the ceremonial turnover, during which he recognized the dedication and bravery of the frontliners against environmental and wildlife crimes in Palawan, which is known as both a source and transshipment point for illegal wildlife trade.

The donated gears, along with Protect Wildlife’s ongoing technical assistance to PCSD and Bantay Palawan in terms of capacity building and strategic assessment and planning, are expected to contribute to scaled-up operations in wildlife and environmental law enforcement.
