According to DENR 8 Regional Director Leonardo Sibbaluca, the relentless efforts of Barangay Chairman Tabao on mangrove conservation strengthened the community’s resilience to climate change, emphasizing on the crucial role mangroves play in protecting the coastline, and serving as buffer for tidal currents and storm surge. He also adds that with the Brgy. Chairman’s dedication to public service and the active participation of the community, DENR is optimistic that together, they can bring back the mangrove stands in Anibong which will serve as protection for the barangay in times of calamities such as typhoons.

In giving the recognition, Director Sibbaluca emphasized the essence of partnership saying “the DENR needs the cooperation of all sectors of society in ensuring a safer and sounder environment to live.”

Other activities anchored on the theme “Environmental and Climate Literacy” will also be conducted to drumbeat the observance of the 2017 Month of the Planet Earth.

April is declared as Month of the Planet Earth per Presidential Proclamation No. 1482 signed by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in 2008. This intends to enjoin all sectors of society to protect and save our planet from environmental degradation and ensure a sustainable future for all.
