Pawikan nest discovered. Davao Light and Power Company delightfully welcomed the newly found pawikan eggs last January 10, 2017 at the Aboitiz Cleanergy Park in Punta Dumalag, Matina Aplaya, Davao City.
Pawikan tracks were spotted along the shore which led to the discovery of the nest. The mother pawikan is expected to be back 

in two weeks

 to lay her next batch of eggs. A female pawikan usually lays eggs 

three to five

 times in two-week interval during their mating season.
