If we have Miss Earth then why not have the first WCYF as well?," Moran says.

Henry bested 84 other contestants from all over the world, succeeding Canada's Jessica Trisko, Miss Earth 2007.

"Environmental knowledge is something that all of us must share, but most importantly we must teach the youth that this is something that we should instill in them so that in the near future they will be the ones to take care of our mother Earth," she said duringt he question and answer portion.

Meanwhile, David D'Angelo, Co-Chairperson of the WCYF 2009 Executive Committee congratulates Miss Earth 2009, "In behalf of the WCYF 2009 Executive Committee we send our congratulations to my kababayan, Karla Paula Henry in winning this years Miss Earth.
