Fishers’ group frowns at coconut palms planted along Manila Baywalk
MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) led the planting of coconut trees along Roxas Boulevard on Wednesday as part of the Manila Bay beautification project, an initiative that was frowned upon by a fishers’ group. Fisherfolk organization Pamalakaya, in an emailed statement, described the activity as “absurd, trying hard, a waste of public resources, and simply for aesthetics with a meager to no contribution to (the) rehabilitation of Manila Bay.”
