June Pineda

Occidental Mindoro

Ma. Teresita “June” Pineda, Jr. – David works for the Tamaraw Conservation Program under the Department of Environment & Natural Resources.

She started her advocacy on conservation when she was only 15 years old. Coming from the province of Mindoro, she felt responsible to help defend their hometown – and ultimately, our country’s- natural heritage, the Tamaraw.

She says she joined Eco Explorations as Area Head for Occidental Mindoro because she believes in the cause of Eco Explorations for conservation; she could feel the sincerity of the people and she also loves to share the passion that she has with our group.
