A Lot of First: Day 5-Davao

It was a Sunday so before we started our day ahead, we attended mass in one of their beautiful church here in Davao City, the St. Francis of Assisi Church. It’s quite distinctive with other churches because of its altar. It has an open area with landscape at the back so you are in one with nature while listening to the word of God. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to have a picture of the altar because of the on-going mass.

After the mass, the aunt and uncle of my hubby fetched us from there and they were the one who toured us in Davao.

First stop, the Philippine Eagle Nature Conservatory.

The Philippine Eagle is also known as the monkey-eating eagle and the national bird of our country. Sadly, these sturdy creatures are now endangered due to rampant captivity and deforestation. Good thing they have established this sanctuary not only to provide them shelter but as a safe place where they can reproduce. Pag-asa (Hope), the first Philippine eagle that was bred and hatched in the conservatory.   

 

Second stop, Davao Crocodile Park

Davao Crocodile is also known as the mindoro crocodile or the freshwater crocodile. This place was built for propagation of these ferocious but tamed creatures not only for amusement but also for marketing of crocodile leather products. Pangil (Fang), believed to be the second largest crocodile in the country is housed in this park.

Third stop, Mini Zoo

Located inside Davao Crocodile Park, this mini zoo has several exotic animals such as parrots, eagles, ostrich, snakes and bearcats among others.

 After our fun, hassle-free and “all expense paid” trip, we were brought back to Davao City.

 Special thanks to my Hubby’s Aunt and Uncle for their time and effort (they drove all the way from Tagum City) just to tour us around Davao. Not to mention that this was just our first time to see them both and got acquainted with them. A sample of Davaoñeos hospitality.
