MANILA, Philippines — A retired Filipino scientist brought honor to the country after she was featured in "Time" magazine as among the "heroes of the environment."
Iloilo-based Jurgenne Primavera was a senior scientist at the Southeast Asian Fisheries and Development Center (Seafdec) until she retired two years ago.
Primavera said in an interview with online news site The News Today
(www.thenewstoday.info) she is happy that she was featured by Time because this would bring her campaign to a wider audience.
"It's not for me. It's for the mangroves," she said.
