Mr. Rodrigo Poblete turned over to Mayor James “Bong” Gordon Jr. “Speedy and Sleepy,” the pawikans that he named and cared for. The city government, in turn, placed the pawikans to the care of the Ocean Adventure at the Subic Bay Freeport. International standards have declared the species of marine turtle to be endangered all over the world due to illegal trading of the creatures and their low survival rate. Marine turtles or pawikans have 7 different species in the world and five of these species are present in the Philippines which are being protected by Republic Act 9147 or the Wildlife Conservation Act of 2001.
