This was the theme of the recent Haribon visit to Sitio Pangotloan, Barangay Mahabang Lalim, General Nakar, Quezon Province, participated in by eight members who braved the stormy weather to immerse in the community and pay homage to the watershed that contributes to the provision of potable water in Metro Manila. The destination is a community located in Mt. Irid-Angelo (IBA 33), part of the Southern Sierra Madre Mountain Range, and an Important Biodiversity Area (IBA). Haribon partnered with this community for the protection and conservation of this remaining large tract of tropical rainforest in the Luzon Island, Philippines. Then they proceeded to the Agos river where the community demonstrated the use of the “tain”, a fish catchments tool for sustainable fishing.
