Gerry Grospe, 53, used to hunt pawikans and collect their eggs for food 8 years ago. Sometimes, he would even sell his catch in the public market. "Turtle meat, although sold at very high prices, tastes better than beef, that's why people love it" Grospe said. SM Cares Foundation also supported the activity. Cheridel Alejandrino, known as elevator girl, together with SM’s executives,took part in saving these endangered marine animals from predators, as well as poachers and commercial traders in the area.
