The Protected Area Management Section (PAMS) of Provincial Environment and Natural Resources (PENRO) – Pampanga rescued one juvenile Lesser Coucal (Centropus bengalensis) at the Escoto Quarry site along Megadike access road in Barangay Maliwalu, Bacolor, Wednesday, November 6.
With the supervision of PENRO Officer-in-charge Laudemir “Audie” S. Salac and PAMS Section Chief Virginia Timbang, two DENR personnel were deployed to rescue the aves specie. The Lesser Coucal was in captive for six hours at the residence of a certain Edgen Enriquez.
According to Enriquez, the reason for the turn-over is the incapability to support the said wildlife. The rescued bird was turned over to Erick De Guzman, officer-in-charge of Mega Zoo in the City of San Fernando.
Mega Zoo world is a co-partner of PENRO Pampanga on wildlife rescue and rehabilitation operations.
