Felimon Jr. Feliciano
Hello I am Felimon Jr. from Manila, Philippines. I am an environmentalist and a regulatory specialist. After earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology, my professional career began through the country’s management authority for aquatic resources where my key responsibility is to arrange policies regulating the trade and use of aquatic wildlife. Beyond that, I also engage in various pursuits promoting wildlife conservation. I too use my own website and platform – ‘Strange Natures’ to discuss environmental issues and concerns.
The thing I am most passionate about in conservation is the sustainable use of the oceans, seas and marine resources. This motivates me because the Philippines has one of the richest marine biodiversity in the world but heavily suffers from misuse and pollution. Thus, I want to develop strategic policy frameworks that would preserve the country’s marine ecosystems. The future of human society relies on a flourishing nature. I believe all of us should commit to keeping biodiversity functional and the ecosystem healthy. Hopefully, by joining the Y4WC forum and the CITES CoP, I will strengthen my skills that would make Earth prosperous again.
