PCG CHICAGO CONDUCTS CONSULAR OUTREACH SERVICES IN MINNESOTA

Chicago, 22 September 2021 – In collaboration with the Philippine Center of Minnesota (PCM), the Philippine Consulate General in Chicago conducted a consular outreach mission in Maplewood, Minnesota last Saturday, 18 September 2021.

The outreach team, headed by Consul Ryan Pondoc, provided a total of 234 consular services to Filipinos and Filipino-Americans who are based in Minnesota during the one-day activity.

During the event, Ms. Nikki Villavicencio, Maplewood City Council Member and a top advocate for persons with disabilities, dropped by the venue to visit the consular team and her constituents. She is a third-generation Filipino-American. Her grandfather, Celso Villavicencio, immigrated to the US from the Philippines in the 1920s as a physician.

This is the Consulate’s fourth outreach this year after Missouri, Ohio and Michigan.

For updates on consular outreach activities, Filipino and Filipino-American communities in the US Midwest may visit the Consulate’s official website (www.chicagopcg.com) and its page (@PHinCHICAGO).

PHILIPPINE CONSULATE GENERAL IN CHICAGO VISITS THE AWARD-WINNING PHILIPPINE WILD REEF EXHIBIT AT THE SHEDD AQUARIUM

03 September 2021 (CHICAGO) – As part of Philippine Consulate General in Chicago’s programs and activities in commemoration of the Maritime and Archipelagic Nation Awareness Month (MANA Mo), selected personnel of the Consulate had a guided visit to the award-winning Philippine Wild Reef Exhibit at the Shedd Aquarium on Friday, 03 September 2021.

The Consulate team was led by Consul and Acting Head of Post Ryan Francis Gener, accompanied by Consuls Ryan Pondoc and Melvin Almonguera; Mr. Richard Osea, Protocol Officer, Administrative and Political Assistant; Ms. Cynthia Acaba, Finance Officer; Ms. Leila Imperial, Property Officer; and Mr. Joseph Alcantara, Consular Assistant.

The Consulate personnel were provided a guided visit to the Philippine Wild Reef Exhibit by Ms. Andrea Rodgers, Senior Vice President for External Affairs and Marketing; Mr. Charles Knapp, Vice President for Conservation Research; Mr. Mark Schick, Senior Director of Animal Operations and Habitats; and Ms. Kristen Neria, Director for Exhibit Services.

During the tour, Shedd Aquarium executives took the opportunity to share with the Consulate their plans in updating and enhancing the Philippine Wild Reef exhibit which will be undertaken in the coming months.

The John G. Shedd Aquarium is the world’s oldest and largest indoor marine mammal exhibit in the world, with two million annual visitors (pre-pandemic). The Philippine Wild Reef Exhibit, which formally opened on 15 April 2003 is an award-winning permanent exhibit that continues to draw excellent reviews from visitors. It is also the most visited exhibit at the Shedd Aquarium.

The Philippine Wild Reef Exhibit is one of the largest and most diverse shark exhibits in North America. Guests begin their journey at the surging shores of a recreated Apo Island, and then surface to the mangroves and beaches of the Visayan coast. To create an environment where the fishes will feel comfortable with their surroundings, Shedd Aquarium imported from the Philippines, among others, 17.5 tons of sand and a fisherman’s house. Shedd brought to Chicago the coral reefs of the Philippines, an epicenter of marine diversity with 450 species of coral and 2,500 species of fish and home to more than 40 species of shark. END
