Values, Culture, and Spirituality Consultation: The Philippine Eagle

Event description: 

September 8, 2022

Online at 6am EDT

In this consultation, we explore the special relationships that still exist between humans and other species when those species are considered “sacred.” Join us as we delve into the world of the critically endangered Philippine Eagle and hear from an Indigenous community working with others to protect their sacred species. How can that sacredness help protect the species and the ecosystems in which it lives? And how can working together with, and in support of, Indigenous peoples bring new solutions to conservation?

Speakers include:
- Matanem Hernan Ambe, Indigenous Bagobo Tagabawa leader
- Jimbea Lucina, Manager for Culture-based conservation, Philippine Eagle Foundation
- Joan Carling, Indigenous Peoples Rights International
- And the participation of the Bagobo Tagabawa community members
