MetadataShow full item record
Residents planted at least 5,000 mangrove propagules in eight coastal villages of this province in a bid to preserve the shorelines’ environment against the emerging effect of climate change. The planting materials were provided and were distributed by the provincial government headed by Governor Ryan Luis V. Singson through the local Environment and Natural Resources Office (ENRO) for the shorelines of the towns of Sinait, Tagudin and Santa Catalina. “We should do our best to keep our province a better place to live - in. Our efforts today will not go to waste; it will serve for the next generations,” Singson said.
