DENR set to restore Boracay ‘Dead Forest’
MetadataShow full item record
Restoration work will soon begin on Boracay’s Wetland No. 6, also known as “Dead Forest,” after the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) had successfully recovered the area from illegal occupants. DENR was able to clear the 8.5-hectare wetland located in Barangay Manoc-Manoc of illegal structures, whose occupants — 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).
