On the other hand, Dr. Julie Ann Altares, a member of the Municipal AI Task Force in Aparri town in Northern Cagayan which is identified as one of the hotspots in the country due to the presence of migratory birds, said that the municipal AI task force has done activities such as the conduct of information drive in the barangays especially those identified as bird sanctuaries.
