Students vow to protect sea cows
MetadataShow full item record
The Philippines have thousands of species that are undeniably incredible, including the largest and only sea-living mammal which grazes on seagrass, the Dugong (Dugong dugon). Presently, we have seen the number of dugong in the country slowly diminishing due to man-made and natural threats such as loss or degradation of seagrass habitat due to activities that cause water pollution, incidental capture in fishing gears, hunting, chemical pollution, climate change and more. Thus, in order to spread the importance of conserving and protecting such important mammal, an Information Education and Communication (IEC) Campaign led by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR)-Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO)-6 Culasi was conducted in Malabor Elementary School and La Paz Elementary School in Tibiao, Antique, just recently.
