MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) on Tuesday said restoration work would soon begin on Boracay’s Wetland No. 6, also known as “Dead Forest,” citing the agency’s recovery of the area from illegal occupants. The DENR, according to a statement, was able to clear the 8.5-hectare wetland located at Barangay Manoc-Manoc of illegal structures, whose occupants, including 31 families belonging to the Tumandok tribe, will be transferring to lands awarded to them by the government. “That’s hitting two birds with one stone,” said DENR Director Natividad Bernardino, who serves as general manager of the Boracay Inter-Agency Rehabilitation Management Group (BIARMG).
