2nd Raptor Festival successful

GLAN, Sarangani (October 3, 2019) - Governor Steve Chiongian Solon and his family join bird watchers during the 2nd Raptor Festival on October 2 at Raptor Hill in Barangay Rio del Pilar as a flock of migratory birds of prey approaches to roost briefly at the adjacent Mt. Gulo before they leave for Indonesia. Mt. Taltak on the opposite side, sighted at their back, is another site where these raptors roost and where the Provincial Government of Sarangani led a reforestation activity every Raptor Festival since 2018. As of October 2, the Environmental Conservation and Protection Center team performing confirmatory raptor migration study reported that more than 101,882 raptors have been sighted crossing the area since the monitoring started last September 16.
