I say so because my best efforts to learn more about him weren’t good enough.
What do I really know about the Philippine eagle?
When did I teach my wife and four children about Philippine raptors?
I shot Pamana because I did not integrate love for wildlife enough in my lesson plans.
Was I able to integrate bird calls in my corporate communication lessons?
I shot Pamana because I did not write enough about how much the Philippine eagle means to me. I remember in my younger years that it was originally called as the monkey eating eagle and it was only when it was being called the Philippine eagle that my awareness was piqued.
Did I strive hard enough to love and protect our national treasure?
I am claiming Environment Secretary Ramon Paje’s P100,000 reward to anyone who can provide information leading to the arrest and conviction of the killer of Pamana (Philippine eagle found dead in Mount Hamiguitan Range in Davao Oriental).
I am the man who shot Philippine eagle Pamana; I have killed myself.
