PENR Officer of Leyte


On November 5, 2018, Forester Moises B. dela Cruz assumed the position as the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officer for Leyte replacing the former OIC PENR Officer for Leyte Ranulfo Q. Arbiol.         

PENR Officer Moises B. dela Cruz, is the 13th Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officer (PENRO) of DENR PENRO Leyte, since its reorganization on June 10, 1987 per E.O. 192 and later until its functional structure was rationalized under the government’s rationalization program per Executive Order No. 366.

Fondly called by friends and colleagues as “Moy”, PENRO dela Cruz was born on November 24, 1956. Though he hails from Urdaneta, Pangasinan, he is already adapted to the Waray Waray Culture as he spent long years of his life in Tacloban City where he married a full blooded Waray Waray, and they are blessed with five (5) children.

PENRO dela Cruz finished his Bachelor of Science in Foresty at Benguet State University. He pursued higher education at Palompon Institute of Technology, in Palompon Leyte where he finished his Master of Arts in Management, and took up Master in Environemental Science at the University of Southern Philippines in Cebu City. He also earned doctoral units from the Naval Instituture of Technology in Naval, Biliran.

Fresh from his graduation in college, he started his career here in Region 8, with the Sab-A Basin under the Bureau of Forest Development. He rose from the ranks and he was assigned to the different field offices of the BFD and now the DENR in the provinces of Samar, Leyte and Biliran.

The different technical, managerial and leadership training that he attended, as well as the work experiences gained in his various field assignment, has honed him to be a competent PENR Officer, as he is today.....
