        The battle cry of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources through its commander Secretary Roy A. Cimatu is to save and restore Boracay Island in six months. Thus, Secretary Cimatu ordered the deployment of DENR personnel from six regions to help with the mission, including the DENR 4A CALABARZON Region.
        DENR 4A CALABARZON Region is teamed up with DENR CAR, headed by its Regional Director, Sofio B. Quintana and Ralph Pablo, respectively. The team from CALABARZON Region is composed of the following personnel, to wit: PENRO Isidro Mercado, LMO III Allan Willard Estillore and For. Joseph Dacasin; while for the CAR, personnel deployed were ARD Augusto Lagon, Joseph Dilem, Davis Siao, Onofre Daguio, Dancio Martines, Dominador Martin and Bryan Samuel.


        The team was tasked to conduct coordination with the LGUs, serve show cause orders, inspect violations of establishments if there is any, ensure that forest/timberland and wetlands were not destructed due to construction of establishments/structures, and prepare observation and recommendation.
Meanwhile, PENRO Isidro Mercado presented the initial report of the team to Sec. Roy A. Cimatu during the meeting on February 26, 2018. The team recommended the demolition of structures established within the areas of wetlands and 25+5 meter easements from the shoreline such as commercial establishments, stalls, and signages. This also includes informal settlers who inhabited within the wetlands.
         Further, PENRO Mercado briefed the second batch of personnel. He discussed the status of their activity and the areas of assignment of the team.
For the second week of the mission, DENR CALABARZON deployed Atty. Dominic Bermudez, Acting Chief of the Legal Division, Dr. Joseph Palomar from the Conservation and Development Division and Ms. Melinda Gapas-Gordo, In-Charge of the Regional Strategic Communication and Initiatives Section, to continue the tasks of the first batch of personnel deployed for the mission.
        The future of the Island and the country is on the hands of each and everyone. Every Filipino has the responsibility to act, to care and to ensure the conservation and protection of the environment and natural resources not just for the present but especially for the future generations.
