PREVIEW ANIMALS’ ALLIES

Trixie Concepcion is the current Regional Director for Earth Island Institute Asia Pacific, an environmental and animal welfare organization. Normally quiet, she goes into “talking mode” when there is an important advocacy that needs attention, such as environmental protection or animal welfare. In the Philippines, they embarked on campaigns to educate the general public about the cruelty in keeping wild animals, such as Dolphins for display or entertainment. One of their biggest campaigns at the moment is saving the last remaining Irrawaddy Dolphins in the Iloilo and Guimaras Strait. They are also going to be active in voter education in the coming 2022 elections as they believe that environmental issues are national issues.
