local.seafdecaqd.extractAs always, Jurgenne Primavera though about her achievements. The retired Iloilo-based scientist has been featured by Time magazine in its Oct. 6 special issue on "Heroes of the Environment." She was among 30 activists, scientists, celebrities, innovators and financiers all over the world who were cited for their contribution to environmental protection. Her passion also greatly reinforced by her participation in the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm in 1972. But the intensifying armed conflict between government troops and Moro rebels in the 1970s prompted her and several other scientists in Mindanao to relocate to Iloilo and join the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (Seafdec).en
