Environment

We work to preserve our natural habitat so that future generations can enjoy the environment as we do. Our programs span the circle of life: from planting seedlings of trees that will grow to protect and nourish, to ensuring that seas are clean, to taking care of endangered animals that play a vital role in the ecosystem. These, so nature can continue to nurture life.

The Phoenix Petroterminals and Industrial Park in Calaca, Batangas is home to the Pawikan Conservation Project, which has been ongoing for many years in partnership with the local government and DENR- Protected Areas and Wildlife Bureau. Pawikan eggs are incubated at the make-shift hatchery just outside the terminal walls. These hatchlings are eventually released to sea.


We have adopted a Philippine Eagle named "Phoenix" at the Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF) in Davao City. Our five-year commitment of support is used to take care of the eagle, the operation and maintenance of the eagle's breeding facility, and the associated conservation research and campaign of PEF.

Volunteers from Phoenix, our adopted schools, the barangay, and our other partners regularly participate in the annual International Coastal Clean-up organized by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the local government, and other environmental groups.

In August 2009, Phoenix Philippines Foundation adopted three kilometers of the El Rio Vista Riverbank as part of our efforts to save the Davao River. We have planted thousands of malibago seedlings and released thousands of tilapia fingerlings. Phoenix holds this project in partnership with Brgy. 19-B, Protect Davao River Movement, Solidarity of Multisectoral Group in Davao City (Solid Davao), Gagmayng Kristohanong Katilingban (GKK), and the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources-XI.

Team Phoenix actively participates in our regular tree planting activities in Batangas, and at our adopted watershed areas in Davao, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu and Bacolod. We team up with institutions like the NBA, Philippine Coast Guard, Bacolod City Water District, Davao City Water District and other organizations for our tree planting activities.
