Nadine Lustre bestowed ‘honorary park ranger’ title for environment, animal welfare advocacy
Just a year after deciding to go on a pescatarian diet, and then going vegan, it seems that Nadine Lustre has embarked on a new journey as wildlife protector.
An advocate for the environment, Lustre was recently bestowed the title “honorary park ranger” by Masungi Georeserve, a private conservation area in Rizal, citing her concern and care for animals and the planet, which was her consideration in changing her diet to vegan, which involves eating plant-based food including vegetables, fruits, nuts, and grains, while dairy products such as eggs, and meat are not allowed.
“Nadine wanted to see how Masungi was doing amid our challenges [and] came to show support. She also shared with us her journey to a vegan lifestyle, which she is embarking on for the welfare of animals [and] the planet,” their tweet read.

The conservation area also shared photos of the award-winning actress participating in its tree-nurturing activities, where she was seen removing weeds and mulching or preserving the soil’s moisture by covering it with wood chips, bark, or other organic materials.
The “Deleter” star revealed in a March 2022 interview with celebrity doctor Aivee Teo that living in Siargao pushed her to become a pescatarian, where she shared that she wants to become a vegetarian in the future.
During a separate interview with local lifestyle magazine Cosmopolitan Philippines earlier this month, Lustre admitted that she would likely end up in jail for “fighting for the environment.”
“That’s a serious thing. It would probably happen eventually, I hope not. But fingers crossed. But I see that happening eventually,” she was quoted as saying. EDV
