To cap the Environment Month celebration, the provincial government will be “bringing people to nature” today (July 1) through mangrove planting. Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENRO) chief Arthuro Cangrejo said a total of 5,000 propagules of mangrove trees will be planted in Barangay Santiago, Barotac Viejo, Iloilo. Mangroves protect shorelines from damaging storm and hurricane winds, waves, and floods. They also help prevent erosion by stabilizing sediments with their tangled root systems.
