Mindoro mangroves offer protection, promote eco-tourism
MetadataShow full item record
The coastal barangay of Silonay in Calapan City, Oriental Mindoro has been living under the constant threat of storm surges for decades because of its location. While situated within the center of the Coral Triangle known for its lush biodiversity, the province is visited frequently by destructive typhoons and heavy downpour which submerges low-lying settlements. Once separated from the mainland by an estuary, it has been identified by the Department of Environment and Natural Resource (DENR) as the most vulnerable village.
