Manila Bulletin Online reports: "The Philippine Reclamation Authority (PRA) belied earlier claims made by an environmental group that the man-made bird sanctuary located along the Parañaque City coastal area would be removed to make way for the reclamation." The PRA assured the public that the bird sanctuary will be "preserved to become part of a major eco-tourism development that will rise on nearby reclaimed lands."

 

The report quoted PRA representative Eduardo Destura, who said, "The PRA has always been one with the Manila Bay Critical Habitat Management Council (MBCHMC) in preserving this critical habitat. We have secured this place long before its declaration as a critical habitat. We will continue to protect it." Destura made the announcement in a speech before the MBCHMC during the Earth Day celebration on Sunday, April 22.
