The Agriculture, Environment and Planning Officers of 15 towns and cities in Panay and Guimaras provinces have resolved to conserve and rehabilitate mangroves in their respective areas by establishing nurseries, planting greenbelts, restoring degraded sites and conducting Information-Education campaigns among coastal communities. Around 30 municipal and provincial government officials participated in the Seminar-Workshop on Mangrove Conservation through Local Governance held 17-19 August 2005 at the Sampaguita Gardens Resort in New Washington, Aklan and funded by the Pew Fellows Program in Marine Conservation. The Governance Workshop followed the Mangrove Education Seminar-Workshop organized for teachers in May, also supported by Pew.
