In Memoriam

What a sad and shocking day to start my first post of the year 2011.

Dr. Gerardo “Gerry” Ortega — an environmental advocate, media practitioner and program manager of the Philippine Ecotourism Palawan of the ABS-CBN Foundation — was shot dead this Monday morning at Puerto Princesa, Palawan.

Though, I really don’t know the guy personally but I had a great eco adventure moments with Doc Gerry, as he was called, and the rest of the Bayan Ni Juan community when we were in Palawan back in February, 2009 for our green issue (InFlight April-May) with Oggie Ramos as our photographer and Yasmin Arquiza, writer.
