Anakalusugan party-list and Quezon City mayoral candidate Mike Defensor is eyeing co-managing the Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife Center and the La Mesa Eco Park.

Defensor said allowing the city government to infuse funds into the two parks would bring further development that would encourage more people to visit the area.

“Ang Quezon City lamang ang siyudad na may dalawang gubat … kailangan tumulong kami sa pag-improve nito,” Defensor said.

He said the Wildlife center could be developed like the night safari of Singapore.

“Yung Ninoy Aquino center ano yan eh 26 hectares, ito’y nasa ilalim ng DENR (Department of Environment and Natural Resources). Ipapaki-usap ko sa kanila baka pwede kami magtulungan sa pagma-manage, kung pwede ibigay nila sa city at gawin namin ito na mini zoo yung katulad nung night zoo ng Singapore,” Defensor added.

He said the improvement in La Mesa dam should also be continued. “Dito naman sa La Mesa dam syempre ituloy natin na palakasin at pagandahin ang lugar na yan.”

Defensor pointed out that La Mesa dam could be a center of learning for those who wanted to know and experience nature and forestry.
