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.
