MetadataShow full item record
Residents in the island barangay of Banacon, this town, which has the largest man-made mangrove forest in Asia in terms of area planted with different species, have been promised more jobs by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR). Environment Undersecretary Sylvia Ordoñnez, head of the climate change office, told mangrove growers here Friday the department is looking for alternative sources of income for them, who are mostly fisherfolk. The mangrove area is more than 20 kilometers long and two or more kilometers wide and covers at least three barangays - Jagoliao, Nasingin and Banacon here and island barangays Calibutan and Gindacpan, all in Talibon town.
