Wednesday late night after Saksi

This Wednesday, it's time for some serious business as Born to be Wild hosts, Romi Garduce and Doc Ferds Recio call for the preservation of nature and wildlife - both above and beneath the sea.

At first glance, it may seem like any other part of the Philippine coastline. But beneath the surface, Verde Passage holds a priceless treasure. This 100-kilometer stretch of turquoise waters is considered the center of marine biodiversity in the world! Unknown to many, the richest and most diverse underwater ecosystem can only be found in the Philippines.

Dive master Romi Garduce together with a team of conservationists show us what true beauty lies beneath the Passage, which is also one of the busiest waterways in the Philippines. Romi and other lovers of the environment call for the conservation of Verde Passage from the threat of oil and chemical barges that daily cross its waters.

Meanwhile, Doc Ferds Recio is on a mission in another province known for its pristine beaches - Camarines Sur. The province, which is a developing eco-tourism area, is also home to different wildlife. Doc Ferds visits a deer farm to perform surgery to a deer in distress. Our vet-to-the-rescue also checks on Camarines Sur's tourism animals.

Don't miss this episode of Born to be Wild, airing this Wednesday after Saksi!

Sina Romi at Doc Ferds. may misyon ngayong Miyerkules!

Sa unang tingin, mistulang ordinaryong bahagi lang ng dagat ang Verde Passage sa Batangas. Pero sa ilalim ng dagat pala matatagpuan ang itinuturing na sentro ng marine biodiversity sa buong mundo! Dito matatagpuan ang pinakamataas na bilang ng buhay dagat sa iisang lugar.

Siyempre, hindi pahuhuli ang dive master nating si Romi Garduce sa pagtuklas ng mga kamangha-manghang yaman sa Verde Passage. Pero ang bahaging ito ng ating karagatan na siyang pinakahitik sa likas yaman. araw-araw dinaraanan ng mga barkong lulan ang krudo at iba pang kemikal. Sa paanong paraan kaya mapo-proteksyunan ang yaman at ganda ng Verde Passage?

Samantala, to the rescue naman si Doc Ferds sa isang deer farm sa Camarines Sur. Isang operasyon ang kaniyang gagawin upang gamutin ang karamdaman ng isang usa sa lugar. Habang naroon, kikilalanin rin ni Doc ang ibang hayop sa Camarines Sur, na isang eco-tourism site.
