WWF Philippines originally launched the #Conservatunes concert series last May as part of biodiversity week to promote environmental conservation and lend a hand to various communities.
The first leg of the series sought to help out the towns of Boca Engaño, Masbate and Donsol, Sorsogon which also do not have their own water systems.
Several artists such as Janine Teñoso, Bea Lorenzo, Hazel Faith, Johnoy Danao, Zephanie Dimaranan and several others have also participated in the said concert series. JB
