His silver hair and well-toned skin hardly reveal his age of 86 years.

Speaking about the sea and explaining the intricacies of the ecosystem beneath it is part of National Scientist Angel Alcala’s daily route of delivering his talks extemporaneously. During a youth camp in Siaton town, Negros Oriental province, on April 28, he posed a challenge to the young audience: It’s now your turn to protect the environment.
