MetadataShow full item record
In an effort to conserve and protect the wetlands in Buguey, Cagayan province, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) collaborated with the younger generation as their partners during the recently held Buguey Wetlands Summit 2019. Composed of coastal lagoons, freshwater marshes, mangrove swamps, mudflats, with some fish, crab and shrimp ponds, and large rice paddies, the Buguey Wetlands covers about 500 hectares or about 80 percent of the total land area of Buguey municipality. The DENR Cagayan Valley (Region 2) office said the young partners were the elementary and high school students who resided near the Buguey Wetlands who participated in the Buguey Wetlands Summit on February 2. The summit with the theme “Wetlands and Climate Change” highlighted the celebration of the World Wetlands Day (WWD).
