Professionals urge Ateneans to promote environmentalism – Earth Island Institute Philippines

Earth Island Institute Regional Director Trixie Concepcion tackled the importance of environmental advocacy, while Best Alternatives Campaign Head and Reader's Digest Opinion Leader Gregg Yan discussed viable alternatives for the seafood and marine aquarium trades.

Ecotalk, a flagship project of the Ateneo Environmental Science Society, is an annual series of lectures conducted by professionals on various environmental issues.
Titled "Elevating Environmentalism from Fad to Standard," Ecotalk 4 aimed to address pressing issues about the environment and to offer practical solutions for these problems.
In her lecture, Concepcion stressed the need for environmental advocates given the onset of climate change.
"Like it or not, the environment is going to be a big issue for us and our children. It just depends on where you are in the spectrum and advocacy for the environment and climate change," she said.
Concepcion claimed that "anyone who seeks change from the present status quo is an environmentalist," adding that technical background in the field is not as necessary as the passion for the work.
"Environmental issues are not just technical issues. It is about people, it is about culture, it is about politics, and these move together all at the same time," she said.
She added, "How you win your issue is if you can navigate all these different aspects of an environmental problem.

In an interview with The GUIDON, Concepcion said the youth is most affected by current environmental issues.
"In many developing countries like the Philippines, it is the youth that is actually suffering [from] environmental issues… It's the kids who die because there's lack of food, lack of proper nutrition in [evacuation] shelters," she said in a mix of English and Filipino.
She further added that the middle class youth have the most influence in promoting environmental causes because they have the resources. They also tend to be more eloquent in expressing their opinions.
"If the middle class start saying, 'No, we're not going to consume anything unsustainable. No, we're not going to buy anything that destroys the environment,' it's going to make all of these corporations, these companies to rethink about their marketing, rethink about where they're getting their raw materials, rethink about how they're manufacturing their product," said Concepcion.

Should Manila Ocean Park be allowed to import Beluga whales? – Earth Island Institute Philippines

www.earthislandph.org [cached]

Earth Island Institute regional director Trixie Concepcion said the BFAR's process regarding import application is not transparent. She said none of the qualified experts have been consulted by the BFAR, despite the Wildlife Act stating that it should evaluate the "best available information or scientific data showing that the activity is, or for a purpose, not detrimental to the survival of the species or subspecies."

Concepcion said that in the US, the Georgia Aquarium's application to import Beluga whales from Russia was rejected "because of the sustainability issue of harvesting wild belugas for commercial purposes."
"Just this November in Quito, Equador, the United Nations, through the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species (CMS) highlighted the cultural capabilities of dolphins and whales and passed a resolution to end the capture of wild dolphins and whales for commercial purposes. The Philippines is a party to the CMS," she added. Concepcion said their group is urging the government to support global conservation of animals and reject the importation of not only Beluga whales but also bottlenose dolphins, seals and sea lions.
