LEO AVILA AND THE VANISHING TURTLES OF PUNTA DUMALAG

Councilor Leo Avila to win in several elections in the past, rode on an environmental platform banking on his alleged love affair with marine turtles and the preservation of the vanishing specie. With another election coming he has again turned to marine life – this time on fishes with an economic bent. He wants to establish a fish landing.

Meanwhile the turtles in the Turtle Sanctuary in Punta Dumalag that Avila helped establish have been forgotten, and their habitat, thanks to Avila, in fact assaulted. While caretaker manager of the City Agriculturist Office before returning to the city council, the environmentalist Avila approved operation of fish pens near the Turtle Sanctuary. Since then the fish pens have been dumping tons and tons of toxic feeds into the Punta Dumalag and Times Beach shore area, in the process poisoning  Avila’s forgotten turtles. Avila is the current chair of the city council committee on environment. But his turtles in Punta Dumalag no longer care because to them Avila is a fake environmentalist. They will not be voting for him in the 2016 election.
