MetadataShow full item record
At the crack of dawn, about 150 villagers living near the coastline of Barangay Alangan in this town walked 800 meters to reach a muddy shoreline. Moments later, under the scorching sun, the villagers planted neat rows of 2,000 mangrove propagules at a community-based forest management area here that is being maintained by the people’s organization, Kabarangay Alangan Tungo Sa Isang Gabay (Katig). The villagers were soon joined by about 50 employees of Petron Corp. at the reforestation project initiated by the company 10 years ago.
