PENRO Aklan taps INC for mangrove rehab

Members of the Iglesia ni Cristo joined hands with the DENR-PENRO Aklan to promote environmental protection through mangrove planting at the bakhawan Eco-Park.


Forging alliance for faster environmental protection efforts can indeed be good.

         With its 520-strong environmental volunteers, the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) have planted 3,000 Api-Api propagules across 17 hectares of the mangrove plantation in Bakhawan Eco-Park located in New Buswang, Kalibo, Aklan in celebration of their 101st Anniversary.

The mangrove planting was in support to the implementation of the National Greening Program–Mangrove Rehabilitation which is now in its second year of being maintained and protected.

“We do appreciate environmental support such as this. It made us happy to see so many concerned individuals who are willing to lend a hand to promote environmental protection. With the effects of climate change, we must gather all our efforts together to minimize its impact. Reforesting our mangrove areas helps our coastal communities become climate change resilient,” said Aklan PENR Officer Ivene D. Reyes.

The planting site which the INC group had tasked themselves to replant was damaged by Typhoon Ruby last December 2014. PENRO Aklan led the mangrove planting together with members of the Kalibo Save the Mangrove Association (KASAMA) and other volunteers.

“If we can reforest all of our coastal communities with mangroves, then we are sure that they will have their buffer zones strengthened. It is their first line of defense against the cruel effects of climate change. Working hand in hand with other environmentally-conscious groups or people will help us to continue the call for stronger and climate change resilient communities,” said DENR 6 Regional Director Jim O Sampulna.
