‘Bantay Danao’ reactivated for Agusan Marsh Protected Area
MetadataShow full item record
In an effort to strictly protect the Agusan Marsh Protected Area (AMPA) and other protected areas within and along Agusan River, the Bantay Danao Conservation Group (BDCG) was reactivated in the marsh communities/municipalities of Bunawan, La Paz, Loreto, Rosarion, San Francisco and Talacogon, all in Agusan del Sur province, it was learned Tuesday. The provincial government of Agusan del Sur and the said municipal local government units (LGUs) and Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) are closely coordinating for the reactivation of the BDCG. The BDCG was organized in 2017 with 120 Bantay Danao volunteers deputized by the regional office of the DENR in that same year in an objective to protect the Agusan Marsh.
