MetadataShow full item record
Issues related to mangrove development and conservation appear to have the least important among Filipino journalists covering the environment, a survey of the Washington-based Population Reference Bureau showed. Kathleen Mogelgaard, the bureau’s population, health, and environment fellow, said the journalists covered by the survey report on a wide range of issues from air pollution to marine ecosystems to waste management. “But none selected wetlands, mangroves most important environmental issues facing the Philippines,” she said. Dr. Jurgenne Primavera, senior scientist of the Aquaculture Department of the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, particularly noted how print media poorly treat mangrove conservation stories.
