MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has declared the 11.5km Loon-Maribojoc coastline as a national geological monument to provide for its management, protection and preservation. The coastline was uplifted, or emerged, after the powerful earthquake in Bohol in 2013. According to DENR-Bohol Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officer (PENRO) Nestor Canda, the declaration of Loon-Maribojoc uplifted coast as national geological monument provides for further studies of elevated coral reef deposits and other marine species.
