    0

    THE Bantayan Palawan environment program successfully rescued seven live Hawksbill turtles in the northern town of Dumaran on Friday. Randy Suelo, program manager of Bantay Palawan, said that there were actually nine Hawksbills found at Sitio Pantalan, Barangay Magsaysay in Dumaran after tip offs from residents, but only seven were rescued alive from still unidentified suspects on October 8. During the rescue operation, Suelo said they also discovered one drum of a liquid substance that seems to be formalin inside an abandoned home in the said barangay. This makes them believe that the Hawksbills are being prepared to be stuffed by unidentified suspects. As of this writing, investigation is ongoing in Dumaran to determine the identities and whereabouts of the suspects, since residents who have been interviewed do not know who they are, or where they came from.
