Cimatu promises to recover Boracay's missing wetlands
Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu on Tuesday vowed to recover the missing wetlands in Aklan’s Boracay Island. At least four of the nine existing wetlands of Boracay make up the priority recovery list of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources since they contribute to the pollution to the beach waters. Cimatu said residential structures and commercial buildings sit on these four wetlands.
