DENR EDUCATES THE YOUTH ON THE IMPORTANCE OF OCEAN

Cagayan de Oro City. As part of the celebration of the Month of Ocean this May and to further raise awareness on the importance of coastal and marine environment protection, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Region 10 conducted a lecture on the Implementation of the Coastal and Marine Ecosystem on May 16, 2017 at the DENR 10 Conference Room, Macabalan, Cagayan de Oro City.

The lecture was conducted by the Coastal Resources and Foreshore Management Section (CRFMS) and attended by college students coming from the different universities in the City.

In his opening message, DENR 10 Assistant Regional Director for Management Services Paquito D. Melicor, Jr. stressed the equal capacity of the youth to spark significant change in advancing the campaign for a better environment. He further said that as future leaders, it is important to educate them while they are young and plant the seed of consciousness in their minds while they are vibrant and idealistic.

Students had the chance for an open forum where they asked questions about various issues on coastal and marine environment. Forester Mercedita G. Barbarona, Chief of CRFMS, answered the questions and served as the resource speaker for the lecture.

Early on that day, a Holy Mass presided by Archbishop Antonio J. Ledesma was offered at the St. Augustine’s Cathedral. It was followed by a motorcade around the city participated by employees of DENR Region 10.

Provincial and Community Environment and Natural Resources offices also joined the celebration with various activities which include a launching ceremony of the Cleanest Coastal Community in Oroquieta City, the annual Macajalar Bay Develeopment Alliance’s Pista sa Dagat in Balingasag, Misamis Oriental, and Mangrove planting and distribution of Marine Protected Area markers and buoys in Gingoog City.   

This year’s Month of Ocean celebration is anchored on the theme, “People and the Ocean” giving focus on conserving and protecting our marine environment for healthy oceans, abundant resources and happy people. The Month of Ocean is celebrated every May pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 57, series of 1999. Ana Mae Sumalinog (RSCIS No. 05-139-2017)
