PRESS RELEASE FROM GMA-7:
This Sunday (June 23), GMA Public Affairs proudly presents a timely travel-environmental documentary that will open the eyes of viewers to the issues surrounding some of the country’s heritage sites in “Pamana: Saving our Heritage” bannered by veteran journalists Kara David, Raffy Tima, and Mariz Umali.

The Philippines is home to breath-taking places that have captured the hearts not only of the locals, but of the world as well. In fact, several places were recognized as world heritage sites by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) — an international group that seeks to promote preservation of cultural and natural heritage worldwide.

Currently, there are six world heritage sites in our country: the Baroque Churches of the Philippines, the Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park, the Rice Terraces of Philippine Cordilleras, the Historic City of Vigan, the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, and the Mount Hamiguitan Range Wildlife Sanctuary.

Due to their stunning look and remarkable value, these places have contributed to the fame and recognition of our country. But as time went by, and with the pressing issue of climate change grows, these heritage sites are now threatened.

Of these six heritage sites, three of them have been reported to encounter challenges. The Banaue Rice Terraces is in need of rehabilitation due to massive erosion, the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River witnesses the effects of climate change, and the Historic City of Vigan experiences challenges in the preservation of its cultural value.

Together with Kara, Raffy and Mariz, explore these places and find out what can be done to save them.

Don’t miss “Pamana: Saving Our Heritage” this Sunday (June 23) 3:30 pm on GMA.
