Hello there! My name is Jungie Gumiran, but
most people call me Gie. I am 24 years old
and currently working as a Marketing
Executive in a brand management and
licensing company operating in Southeast Asia
and Greater China for almost 3 years now.
I took up Mass Communication at
Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM) in
the hopes that i would end up being in
broadcast industry - as a TV reporter, to be
specific. A Year after graduation, things and
my priorities have changed i and decided to
explore opportunities that will pay and at the
same time, offers a work-life balance
Bantay Pawikan Bloggers Campaign
Preservation is always been my advocacy as
travel enthusiast. I believe that everyone has
a mission to protect and sustain the
environment be it a living or non-living
One of my passion projects that I’m looking
forward to materialize in the coming years is
the Bantay Pawikan Bloggers campaign. This
project would help to create an online
sanctuary for Pawikan – where bloggers unite
for this special cause.
Conservation efforts in saving the Pawikan have gone a long way in the Philippines since
Task Force Pawikan was created during the reign of former President Ferdinand Marcos
Used to be a special project, the Pawikan conservation program was embraced to be part
of DENR’s wildlife resources-conservation and protection program. This endeavor IS a
great contribution to the global effort to save the endangered wildlife from extinction.
However, we cannot deny the fact that due to limited resources, the programs needs the
much-needed boost to enforce the protection of Pawikan. The program is anchored
mostly on information, education and communication. Online community is a great
support to strengthen the protection program.
