May 3-4, 2014

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has classified an additional 206 caves, bringing to 364 the total number of caverns considered as part of the nation’s natural wealth and therefore require sustainable management and conservation. The classification, according to DENR Secretary Ramon J. P. Paje, was pursuant to Republic Act No. 9072, or the National Caves and Cave Resources Management and Protection Act, which mandates the agency to formulate, develop and implement a national program to conserve, protect and manage caves and cave resources. “Caves are non-renewable resources with unique, natural features that offer significant scientific, educational, economic and aesthetic value and form part of our historical and cultural heritage,” Paje pointed out. He added: “Caves can also be used for our enjoyment, but only to a certain extent. Classifying caves accordingly will thus help define which human activities are allowed within these areas so that we can preserve FRESH CATCH - Fish buyers check out containers of fish sold at the coast of barangay Bonbon in Cagayan de Oro

(Our nation is impossible

to exist without the help of our labor force),” said City Mayor Oscar S. Moreno who graced the opening ceremony of the job fair. Hoping for an employment rate increase in the city and the entire region as well, Moreno also stressed the need for quality education and skills development programs. “We have to improve education level not only in academic but also in skills development programs so that our employment level also improves. We must have the attitude and teamwork to improve this,” he added. The 112th Labor Day celebration in the city was made possible by the wide participation and support of government agencies and partners such as SM City, STI, and other private Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Oscar S.

DA-10 turns over FMR to LGU Catarman CAMIGUIN Province The Department of Agriculture - Regional Office No. 10 (DA-10) recently turned-over the Farmto-Market-Road (FMR) amounting to P3,450,000 to the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Catarman, Camiguin under the Bottoms Up Budget (BUB) / Local Poverty Reduction Action Program (LPRAP) last March 11, 2014 to the farmers and residents of Banao-Dumilag and Phase 1 and 2 of Sto. Niño, Catarman, this province. The 220-meter road segment in Banao-Du-

milag FMR amounting to P2,750,000 and the 130-meter road segment of Phase 1 and 2 of Sto Niño costing P700,000 has been concreted. Funded by DA-10 under BUB/LPRAP, this project is seen to make transportation of farm inputs and produce to and from the market easier, thereby ensuring quality of goods. Gracing the turn-over was Carlota S. Madriaga, Regional BUB/LPRAP Coordinator, who passed on the key of responsibility to Catarman Mayor Nestor A. Jacot and Sto.

Niño. barangay Captain Gerardo Tambor. Also present during the turnover are Engr. Isidro B. Dablo Jr., Municipal Engineer; Teodora D. Gadgude, Municipal Agriculturist of Catarman, Raul M. Buhisan, Sangguniang Bayan Member and other municipal employees. Tambor expressed his gratitude for the FMR Project in their barangay saying “Kaniadto bisan habal-habal dili musukol paghatod kay lisod ang dalan, pulos lubak-lubak labi na kung ulan.” (Before, the modified motorcycles or

sidecar taxis won’t endure accepting deliveries and passengers due to almost impassable road especially during rainy days) But now, he says they can demand higher price of their farm produce as it can be delivered easier, which maintains the quality of goods. Madriaga likewise commended the local government unit (LGU) for being the first in northern Mindanao to complete and turn-over the BUB projects for Fiscal Year 2013. (Teodora D.

CAGAYAN de Oro City The Climate Change Congress of the Philippines (CCCP), under the guidance of the City Archbishop, Most

Rev. Antonio J. Ledesma, convened stakeholders from all over Mindanao for a two-day Regional Special Conference Linking Climate

Ventures of life By Ellaine Rea M. Quimod - SST-1 Quezon National High School Quezon , Bukidnon

Life is full of adventures along the crossroads. Only in the advent of risking people enlarge their views over the reality. a person who has not encountered difficulties in life can never achieve success. One should be always ready to face adversity and challenges.As a matter of fact, everything we think, do and act corresponds to how we carry on our desired direction of life living. The future of every individual is indispensable tool towards moving on the next chapter of finding the realm of life. Apparently, everything we create today is based on the knowledge that we obtain throughout our life that has a counter balance of the scenarios beyond. All throughout our lives is a venture to carry on in this changing and competitive world. Opportunity is a God given path to fight on and to live on that is crucial. In which, faith is the most essential bricks in building any successful venture. Human have the power to dictate its journey of living but fate is around that can hold the desire of a person. We can’t hold our future, yet we can prepare for a better transformation in return. Believing on an impossible thing carries a huge of upliftment of excitement conquering the world beyond existence. What matters most is on the way we deal with any circumstances in a fruitful and meaningful manner. Whatever we do, whatever we think and whatever we decide if it’s not for us, nothing will happen. Trying to understand what life is all about can totally change our lifestyle. Consequently, there is no depth on searching the meaning of life. I believe the best way to live a meaningful life : continuously grow as an individual and contribute to other people in a meaningful way. Thus, enjoy life but also prepared to bear the pricks of pain.

Resilient Agriculture (CRA) and Watershed-based Integrated Ecosystems Management (WIEM) last April 29-30, 2014, this city. Supporting CCCP in organizing the conference were the Department of Agriculture (DA), Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR), National Convergence Initiative (NCI)

and the Cagayan de Oro River Basin Management Council (CDORBMC). Engr. Roxana Hojas, regional technical director for operations of the DA Regional Office 10 (DA10), presented the situation, challenges and programs of the DA here in the region. With the theme: “Putting the Poor at the Center of Development,” the activity ushered in a governmentcivil society organizations policy and program dialog

and was considered as a partnership-building conference, which tackled issues on development, climate and environment in the poor sectors in the CDO River Basin. “Climate change influences agriculture more than any economic activity. The negative impacts on agriculture sees the need to urgently take adaptive measures in securing food selfsufficiency and addressing the concerns on increasing

food commodities prices, environmental degradation and all others due to climate change,” organizers said. The United Nations report on climate change released on March 30, 2014, concluded that global warming will hit the poor sector the hardest, especially those who depend on agriculture and fisheries as their source of livelihood. Organizers observed that in the Philippines, typhoon See confab, page 11

Persecutors Special Gospel of the day: Luke21:12-19(May 3, 2014-Saturday) Luke 21:12-19. But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute [you], delivering [you] up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake. And it shall turn to you for a testimony. Settle [it] therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer: For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist. And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and [some] of you shall they cause to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all [men] for my name’s sake. But there shall not an hair of your head perish. In your patience possess ye your souls: This gospel reminds us to be strong in the journey of service since persecutions are always constant. In Matthew 5:10-12-Blessed [are] they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are ye, when [men] shall revile you, and persecute [you], and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great [is] your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. I can attest to you about this reality since I am also a victim of persecutions but what is necessary is we will face this humbly. Take note, you will grow in persecutions and sufferings. In Matthew 5:44-but I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.

Plunderers should be in jail We have been hearing about plunder cases, both filed and those about to be filed, but we have yet to see people convicted and thrown to jail. The case of Erap could have been the first one to take place had it not been of the pardon that then Pres. Gloria Arroyo bestowed upon him. I could feel some plunder cases will be filed against senators and some big names in the government by way of the Napoles scandal and surely I trust this time it would be different. I mean the accused will be detained while the cases are being heard. And I wish to see convicts behind bars where they belonged and will rot as sinners of society. No pardon please. If these plunder cases happen to the poor and unknown convicts, I supposed we have to build more prison buildings to accommodate them all. The trouble is this is the cases of the rich and powerful, the influential and the super people thus almost always they retain their stature. Most probably no actual jailing. Someone can bail them out if no executive

The Striker

Ben Emata Jr. clemency can fall from the heavens. That is usually the picture of our justice system where only the weak and the unknown are thrown to jail. I hope things have changed and this time the people with golden spoons in their mouths should be wearing tattoos too. Once you are in jail, your co-inmates will put these tattoos in your body and if you refuse, they will put cigarettes in your eyes and ears. According to Secretary Leila De Lima of the department of Justice, the cases against the three senators, namely: Enrile, Estrada and Revilla, are strong and as such I could see our jail will be host to some powerful tigers in Philippine politics. They have to sleep on the floors, side by

side, with the murderers, the robbers, the rapists, (I hope they will not be raped by fellow inmates) the terrorists and other big time criminal. According to some inmates, life in jail is worst than life in hell with flames. When you are good-looking, the sex starved prisoners will fight over you and whoever remains standing owns you as sex partner. It is dog eats dog behind bars. One must be strong and a fighter to maintain manhood and respectability. Pardons or executive clemency is defeating the purpose of the court. What are court proceedings after all if the guilty parties are pardoned after conviction? This right of the president to pardon convicts is unjust

and unfair to people who have no connection to the influential and the powerful. Ordinary people go to jail faster than the morning birds while the wealthy and powerful enjoy life outside of their cells. They have special quarters where they can have wine, women and songs with karaoke equipment. To some of them, extravagance in life goes on no matter what. It is only in death where everything is fair and equal. Some courts do not know that the judgment rendered against some of the guilty parties are useless because these privileged individuals are utterly protected by some powerful hands. The media have exposed some true cases involving such irregularities in our prison system. We should be aware about this and be able to put this on the surface so that responsible people could be punished and justice served appropriately.. I urge people who have knowledge about this stupidity in handling convicted felons should come forward and denounce things. (benemata@yahoo.com)

“Live before you leave” Think a minute… They say, “The greatest risk is not taking one.” Why is it when we grow up and become adults, we stop sticking our necks out and taking chances? Yet, at the end of our life, we’ll probably regret the things we did not do more than the things we did. Remember all the new things in life you learned to do that were big risks the first time you did them? Your first time to swim, your first time to ride a bicycle, your first time to drive a car. Some of the things we do all the time now seemed almost impossible before we did them the first time. The great French leader, Napolean, said: “The word impossible is found only in the dictionary of fools and

Think A Minute Jhan Tiafau Hurst failures.” So ask yourself: “Is the word impossible in the dictionary of my life?” Do you say “I can’t” more often than you say “I can?” Sometimes “you have to go out on a limb if you want to get the best fruit!” We have to learn to be comfortable with uncomfortable challenges, because we can’t discover new oceans unless we’ve got the courage to lose sight of the shore.

We need to believe that the best jobs haven’t been found yet, and the best work hasn’t been done yet. But we can’t have the life we want if we don’t change the life we have. A successful woman said: “A bad habit never goes away by itself; it’s always an undo-it-yourself project.” Smart people sometimes change their minds—but fools never do. So we have to leave our

comfort zone if we want to reach a new kind of success. Don’t allow yourself to be buried alive in your comfort zone, like many people do. It’s OK to use your comfort zone to rest in, but not to live in. So after you’ve recharged your energy, leave your comfort zone to move on to your next challenge. Remember, God never puts limits on your faith, so your faith should never put limits on Him. Faith is not afraid of failing; faith is afraid of not even trying. So why not ask Jesus Christ to give you His faith and power to step out and start changing your life today? If you ask Him to take charge, then He will help you fully live your life—before you leave it. Just Think a Minute…

NGCP trains APEX Mining on transmission basics Compostela Valley – NGCP, the country’s electric transmission service provider, recently concluded a two-day Basic Lineman’s training for the employees of APEX Mining Co., Inc., a publiclylisted company engaged in mining gold, silver, copper, lead, and other precious metals. Thirty-five (35) personnel from APEX attended and successfully completed the free seminar on main-

taining 138-kilovolt (kV) transmission asset with a hands-on session conducted on the second day to allow the participants to experience actual line maintenance. NGCP engineers and linemen incharge of operating and maintaining the transmission lines in Southeast Mindanao area, headed by Engr. Archie C. Villejo, facilitated the training. Apart from learning the basic skills and knowl-

edge needed to operate transmission lines, safety practices were also given emphasis to ensure the welfare of APEX employees in performing line maintenance and restoration activities. Mr. Romeo Molano, APEX Electrical Consultant, expressed his gratitude towards NGCP for providing such programs to power customers. APEX, NGCP’s sole industrial customer in the

Southeast Mindanao area, operates and maintains the Nabunturan – APEX 138kV line which connects the mining facility to the Mindanao power grid. NGCP President and CEO Henry Sy, Jr. is likewise satisfied with the outcome of the program. “Basic Lineman’s training is another way NGCP serves its customers. By equipping them with the right skills and information, we are able to help them

improve the efficiencies of their operations,” said Sy. NGCP also offers similar training programs to distribution utilities, electric cooperatives and local communities hosting its transmission lines and assets. NGCP is a privately-owned corporation in charge of operating, maintaining, and developing the country’s power grid. It transmits high-voltage electricity

through “power superhighways” that include the interconnected system of transmission lines, towers, substations, and related assets. As a corporation with a public service orientation, NGCP conducts corporate citizenship programs to support the communities hosting its transmission facilities and industry stakeholders, which it considers as true partners in nation-building.

A teacher is the builder of the nation and at the same time the model of the future generation. A teacher ensures the goals of education which can be specified as learning in terms of predetermined knowledge,skills, and attitude in specific subjects. Teachers serve the society by instructing and guiding countless students through the different stages of their growth.Let us imagine when we plant a tree in a garden and bound it in all sides, just like a box. . What tree would it become ? Teachers have a collective role in the teaching-learning process, which is a social activity. For the school to functioen smoothly, we need teacher to work in harmony. There must be a constant interaction and close working ethics together which helps teachers not only in understanding their students and their problems but also in their own personal growth as teachers. It leads to the development of the attitude of openness among students. As a matter of fact, everyone has the right to develop endeavor of choice.Teachers are supposed to help students learn certain subjects, but they often do more than that. They give an idea of what the real world would be like. The teacher must create a warm and protective environment but at the same time treating students in a professional way. Everything a teacher says has an impact to the students They play a significant role in shaping the future of the learners. They inspire the minds and cultivate a deep essence in reaching the summit of the learners’ dream in life. It is at this point in a student’s life that a teacher takes on the role of a guide.The teacher has the power to stir a wayward youth away from danger and the power to guide a youth achieve his goals. They have the power to inculcate the ideals of patriotism in the minds of the young students.Teachers genuinely plays an important role in the society . They can make or break the future generation; such is the power that rests in the hands of the teachers. The students are like the clay and the teachers are like the potters that shape their destiny. As a pivotal person in the process of education, teachers supposed to be performing different tasks. I believe that a good teacher does not have one dimension but two. They only not make you excel, but, they make you want to go to school. They care about the students insecurities and problems, and most importantly they are there to support you. A teacher in the society is a friend and guide of the students.

Updates on the repair, maintenance and restoration of the STEAG State Power Inc. - Mindanao Coal-Fired Power Plant 1. STEAG State Power Inc. (SPI) defers the scheduled synchronization of one of its electric generating sets originally planned on 4 May 2014. 2. SPI power plant manager Dr. Carsten Evers explained that while the repairs and restoration works of Unit 2 is substantially completed, the company needs more time to ensure that the unit is in excellent condition prior to commissioning and synchronization to the Mindanao grid. 3. SPI’s power plant went offline last 27 February 2014 after sustaining damage on its turbine-electric generating sets. 4. SPI estimates the new schedule for Unit 2 to be back on line on or before 8 May 2014, while the target date for restoring Unit 1 remains set on or before 1 June 2014. 5. SPI’s power plant has two identical power generating sets with a net capacity of 105 MW each. 6. “We apologize for this delay and rest assured that we are doing everything we can to bring the units back to the grid” Dr. Evers said. 7. SPI is coordinating closely with the Department of Energy (DOE) and other stakeholders in the Mindanao power industry to help improve the power supply condition in the island.

climate variability,” climatologist Annaliza Solis said. The looming El Niño may persist for the next nine months or the first quarter of 2015, Montejo said. “Of course, the El Niño would affect the normal rainfall pattern resulting in reduced rainfall amount,” he added. Dry spell in different parts of the country may be felt, he noted. Despite an El Niño occurrence, Montejo said the country would still experience the normal number of typhoons, but would cause their behavior to become erratic affecting their tracks and intensity. Richard Orendain, PAGASA’s hydrologist, said the water elevation of Bulacan’s Angat Dam that supplies 97 percent of Metro Manila’s

potable drinking water, would go down at its critical level in August due to the impact of the dry spell to be brought about by the El Niño. “Of all the major dams, only Angat Dam has continued to remain low,” he added. Orendain said Angat Dam’s elevation could even dip to as low as 176.75 meters and 154.30 meters based on the bureau’s scenario 1 and scenario 2 forecasts, respectively.” A n g at D a m’s l e v e l dropped to 157.56 meters during an El Niño in July 2010.

and protect Mt. Magdiwata also surfaced when San Francisco Water District dispatched guards allegedly to protect the watershed area but as per investigation and research made by the San Francisco Environment and Natural Resources office (MENRO- LGU) and the ASESDC, it came out that there was once a council for the protection of Mt. Magdiwata that was organized by the municipal government of San Francisco but was disorganized naturally. Presently, the ASESDC and the MENRO-LGU and the Mines and Geosciences/ DENR are conducting research on who has the responsibility to protect Mt, Magdiwata, including the existence of the of the council to protect Mt. Magdiwata so that if found out to be legal, the council will be activated and will become the official organization that has the right to protect, develop and conserve its natural habitat. Before the tree planting or the tree parenting started, volunteers cast their signatures on the tarpaulin printed with a covenant entitled Kampanya Para sa Pagdumala sa Mt. Magdiwata (KP2M2). For organizations, companies, bankers organization, LGUs, business sector National Government Agencies including the Governor and the Vice Governor of Agusan del Sur with Sangguniang Panlalawigan. The covenant reads: “Kami, mga Agusanon ng nakaamgo sa kamahinungdanon sa Mt Magdiwata ug nakahibalo sa dili na maayong sitwasyon sa maong bungtod sa pagkakaron, naga deklara sa among hu-

got ug kinasingkasing nga suporta sa hiniusang Kampanya Para sa Pagdumala sa Mt. Magdiwata (KP2M2) (We, the Agusanons who were awaken by the value of Mt. Magdiwata and knew of the worsening situation of the said mountain at present, declare our strong and heartfelt support in the United Campaign for the Management of Mt. Magdiwata).” “Atol sa pagsaulog sa Earth Day 2014, kami naga saad sa pagpaningkamot aron matagamtaman pa sa umaabot nga henerasyon ang kaabunda ug kaanindot sa GREEN MT. MAGDIWATA, GREEN SAN FRANCISCO, GREEN AGUSAN DEL SUR (In time with the celebration of the Earth Day 2014, we pledged to do our best so that the coming generation can still feel and experience the abundance and beauty of GREEN MT. MAGDIWATA, GREEN SAN FRANCISCO AND GREEN AGUSAN DEL SUR).” (DMS/PIA-Agusan del Sur)

them in their pristine state, or improve them if necessary.” Under DENR Memorandum Circular 2014-03, the newly classified caves are found in 11 regions, with Region 2 having the most number of caves at 101, followed by Region 11 with 30 caves. Among the provinces, Cagayan has the most number of caves with 83, while Davao del Norte was far second with 18 caves. Caves are classified into three categories or classes. “Class I” caves are characterized with delicate and fragile geological formations, may be habitats of threatened species, provide archaeological values and possess extremely hazardous conditions. As such, activities allowed in these caves are limited to mapping, photography, educational and scientific purposes. The DENR circular has listed 21 Class I caves, including the Masi Cave in Adams, Ilocos Norte, the Pagulayan Cave within the Peñablanca Protected Landscape in Cagayan, and the Santol Cave in the Island Garden City of Samal in Davao del Norte. “Class II” caves have sensitive geologic values or high quality ecosystems, as well

as portions with hazardous conditions. As such, they may be closed seasonally or permanently, or may be open only to experienced cavers or guided educational tours. The famous Sohoton Cave in Samar Island Natural Park is one of 154 Class II caves identified in the circular. “Class III” caves are safe for inexperienced yet guide-accompanied visitors, as these do not contain known threatened species or geological or historical values. These caves may also be utilized when appropriate for economic purposes such as extraction of guano (bat waste) and collection of edible bird nests. There are 30 such caves under the new list, among them the Aglipay Cave 5 in the Quirino Protected Landscape, and the Mat-i Cave 2 in Baganga, Davao Oriental. Classification of caves is continuously being undertaken by the DENR. The new list, however, contains 86 caves, mostly located in Cagayan province, assessed and classified by the National Museum for their archaeological or historical value, and 15 in Palawan province by the Palawan Council for Sustainable Development. Upon classification, the DENR field offices oversee the preparation of a management plan on related ecotourism, scientific, educational and economic activities. The approved plan is implemented by the Protected Area Management Board for caves within protected areas (PAs), or in coordination with the concerned local government unit and land owner for those outside PAs. http://www.denr.gov.ph

paths are changing, hitting areas that were once never stricken by ravaging typhoons. Proof is the typhoon Sendong that hit Cagayan de Oro and Iligan City, which shocked the entire nation and the world, as well as other typhoons, which took the lives and livelihoods of the Filipino people especially here in Mindanao, threatening development and food security. Conference organizers will also hold conferences in other areas that were hit and are consistently hit by typhoons all over the country.

The conference gathered farmers, fisherfolks, indigenous peoples, informal settlers, and people from the academe, science, business, government agencies and those in private sectors from all over Mindanao.

and other extreme weather events before it are part of the so-called “new normal” as impacts of climate change increase. But the good news is, he said, mangroves can help coastal communities adapt to climate change. “We hope everyone now appreciates and understands, more than ever, the importance of protecting and rehabilitating our mangrove forests,” Paje said. “Mangroves protect us not only from strong waves and storm surges, but also help clean the air and water along our coastal zones, and provide food security and livelihood to the communities,” he added. The DENR, together with its partners from both the private and government sectors and environmental groups, will kick off the MOO celebration at the DENR grounds in Quezon City on May 5 with Director Theresa Mundita Lim of the Biodiversity Management Bureau giving a talk about the festivity and the unveiling of the MOO 2014 logo. The new logo features elements that incorporate the role of mangroves in protecting communities and other benefits it provide, and conversely, the need for humans to be responsible stewards of nature. Prior to the kick off, Shore It Up – a project of Metro Pacific Investments – will launch Mangrove Protection Information Centers in Pangasinan and Bohol provinces from May 1 to 4. It will also conduct cleanup activities along the shorelines of Bohol. From May 5-10, the DENR will take part in the 6th National Scout Venture Camp in Lingayen town in Pangasinan, administering lecture, environmental games and chants, and interactive exhibit to some 4,500 scouts from all over the country. A bike tour, which has a theme “Padyakan: Sagip Bakawan,” will be held on

May 18 from the Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife Center (NAPWC) in Quezon City to the Las Piñas-Parañaque Critical Habitat and Ecotourism Area (LPPCHEA). The tour will culminate in a mangrove cleanup at the LPPCHEA to be led by Firefly Brigade, a volunteer group of cyclists advocating for cycling as a cleaner mode of transportation. From May 1 to 21, environmental partners World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF), Conservation International (CI)Philippines, and Conserve and Protect Oceans, Inc. will hold the “Bayani ng Bakawan” short video essay event. This will allow the public, using phone cameras and other video-recording devices, to record videos of how ordinary people commit to care and protect mangroves in their communities. Videos may then be shared through social media pages such as the MOO pages on Facebook, Instagram and Google+, or uploaded on popular websites such as Youtube and Vimeo. On May 22, the country will join the global community in celebrating the International Day of Biological Diversity (IDBD) with a theme, “Island Biodiversity.” This will be highlighted by a Youth Summer Camp to be held at the NAPWC from May 22 to June 22; a biodiversity photo contest themed “Protecting the Reservoir of Life, Selfie for Biodiversity”; and the launching of a coffee table book entitled, “Treasures of the Philippine Wild.” Dur ing t he mont hlong MOO celebration, the DENR will also conduct trainings on mangrove and coastal and marine ecosystems, youth camps, coral reef and mangrove damage assessment, among others. Presidential Proclamation No. 57 issued in 1999 declared May as the Month of the Ocean. It mandates the DENR and the Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources to spearhead the observance of MOO and highlight the need to conserve and protect the country’s coastal and ocean resources. The Philippines is home to 47 true mangrove and mangrove associate species. http://www.denr.gov.ph
