The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has called for an end to impunity in crimes against the environment and for Filipinos to fill the gap in law enforcement, especially those that relate to the protection of resources. In celebration of Earth Day, Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu urged the public to stop tolerating environmental abuse and to instead take part in the strict enforcement of environmental laws and regulations.
