PENRO MARINDUQUE CELEBRATES WORLD WILDLIFE DAY
The Marinduque PENR Office spearheaded by OIC- PENRO Imelda M. Diaz together with the thirteen (13) existing Butterfly Permittees or Holders of Wildlife Farm Permit (WFP) and Wildlife Collector’s Permit (WCP) celebrated the “World Wildlife Day”, by releasing the ten percent (10%) of the total production of bred butterflies on March 04, 2019 at Barangay Bangbangalon, Boac.
The activity was done to increase and replenish the population of butterflies that basically help in the plant pollination process and act as natural pest control in the environment. Likewise, the presence of insects in the area is a good indicator of a healthy environment and ecosystems that goes with the theme, “Life below Water for the People and Planet”, of this year’s celebration of the “World Wildlife Day”. jchita
PENRO MARINDUQUE IN ACTION: DOUBLE APPREHENSION
Mogpog, Marinduque- On January 12, 2019, at around 9:25 AM, Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officer (PENRO) Imelda M. Diaz together with Forest Technician (FT) Michael Vencint Sualog, FT John Andrew Magculang and Forest Ranger Randy Estrella while conducting site visit and aerial video documentation of mangrove forest plantation at Brgy. Ino, Mogpog, Marinduque, they heard a chainsaw operating in the area. Following where the sound of the chainsaw was coming from, the team proceeded and saw one (1) felled Mango (Mangifera indica) along the national road and immediately ordered the chainsaw operator to stop the cutting activity. Upon verification, they found out that the tree will be affected by road widening. However, the said chainsaw apprehended due to the absence of proof of registration.
Few minutes later, a concerned citizen informed PENRO Diaz via text messages of an on-going illegal cutting at Brgy. Nangka II, also in the Municipality of Mogpog. The team went to the area and found abandoned freshly-sawn Antipolo (Artocarpus blancoi) lumbers with a total volume of 219 board feet.
The PENRO requested the assistance of Philippine National Police (PNP) Mogpog, specifically in the hauling of apprehended forest products.
The apprehension of abandoned illegally-cut forest products are subject to Administrative Adjudication Proceedings for its final disposition pursuant to DENR Administrative Order No. 97-32 and PD 705.
With this incident, the DENR recognized the important role of the private citizen’s ad partner law enforcers in the success of our implementation of environment and natural resources (ENR) laws. This Office call for more active participation and vigilance of our community. mgpmaniquiz2019
Pawikan nasagip ng DENR sa Marinduque
Naging matagumpay ang pagsagip ng mga tauhan ng Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) sa isang pawikan na napagpag sa baybayin ng Barangay Masiga, Gasan sa lalawigan ng Marinduque kamakalawa.
Nabatid na naglalakad umano sa baybaying sakop ng nasabing barangay si Ariesphel Solas at mga kaibigan nito nang makita ang pawikan, agad naman nila itong ipinagbigay-alam sa kagawad ng barangay alas-kuwatro nang hapon.
Matapos ang tagging, nabatid na ang nailigtas ay isang uri ng green sea turtle, habang pinangunahan ni Brian Iñigo Leaño, forest technician ng DENR-Marinduque, kasama ng ilan pang mga opisyal sa lugar at mga residente ang pagpapakawala sa pawikan sa Sitio Kwatis ng nasabing barangay.
Samantala, hindi naman naging kapareho ang sinapit ng 200 kilo na leatherback sea turtle na natagpuang patay sa baybayin ng bayan ng Bula, Camarines Sur noong Linggo, makaraang sumabit sa mga lubid.
Paalala ng kagawaran, agad na iulat sa mga awtoridad ang mga natatagpuang hayop para mailigtas ito. (Gel Manalo)
