The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) through its Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENRO)- Zamboanga del Norte headed by the Chief Administrative Officer Sarah Zayas, conducts Mangrove Propagule Planting on February 17, 2023 along the mangrove areas of San Pedro, Dapitan City.
At 6 in the morning, a total of 38 selected PENRO personnel, together with the Barangay Officials of San Pedro, simultaneously planted around 300 propagules (Rhizophora mucronata) which shall eventually serve as a natural defense against coastal erosion and flooding caused by extreme weather events.
This activity highlights the importance of protecting our wetland areas through restoration and replanting efforts in protecting and preserving nearby coastlines.
Through collaborative efforts, everyone can make a better change and healthier environment for the present and future generations.
