Magat Dam cleanup campaign protects fisherfolk livelihood
MetadataShow full item record
Some 200 fisherfolk and community leaders have expressed concern over the proliferation of water lilies and driftwood that flowed into the Magat Dam, causing damage to fish cages that affected their livelihood. Responding to this, renewable energy firm SN Aboitiz Power-Magat (SNAP-Magat) recently sponsored a cleanup drive with participating fisherfolk and village leaders whose fishing livelihood depends on the Magat Dam reservoir. Members of the Municipal Fisheries Aquatic Resources Management Council in Ifugao province and the Alfonso Lista chapter of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and the municipal local government unit here attended and participated in the cleanup drive.
