As part of the marine turtle conservation efforts of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources – Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (DENR-CENRO) Calaca, maintenance of marine turtle nesting sites was conducted in Brgy. Mataas na Kahoy, Lemery Batangas on November 11, 2022.

Coastal areas of Brgy. Natipuan, Lemery Batangas was identified as a nesting site for some Marine Turtle species mostly Olive Ridley Turtle (Lepidochelys olivacea) which is classified as an Endangered Species through DENR Administrative Order 2019-09. This species is unlikely to survive in the wild if threats to its survival continue operating. Thus, CENRO Calaca continues to raise awareness and promote community participation on marine turtle conservation through efforts on its maintenance and protection activities including coastal clean-ups, establishment of marine turtle hatcheries, and monitoring.

As part of the maintenance and protection activities of the National Greening Program (NGP) sites established in 2021, monitoring of the 50-hectare and 208-hectare Agroforestry NGP plantation located in Brgy. Latag and Butucan, Nasugbu, Batangas was conducted by the DENR CENRO Calaca Conservation and Development Section on November 8 to 9, 2022.

To ensure the smooth implementation of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) programs and projects, a Full Time Delivery Unit (FDU) meeting was conducted by the DENR Batangas on November 8, 2022. Present in the said meeting are the officials and concerned personnel of PENRO Batangas, CENRO Calaca and CENRO Lipa.  The agenda of the meeting includes: Backlog Activities as of October 30, 2021; Reminder on management matters; Reminder on technical Matters, and other matters.

Ngayong taon, nakatakda ang pagsubaybay ng Conservation and Development Section (CDS) sa siyam (9) natukoy na mga Migratory Bird Sites na matatagpuan sa mga bayan ng Lumban, Pakil, Calauan, Siniloan, Pagsanjan at Lungsod ng San Pablo sa lalawigan ng Laguna.

Ayon sa pagsubabay, may 33 na mga migratory bird species ang naitala sa mga nasabing tukoy na mga Migratory Bird Sites. Sampung (10) species mula dito ay migrante, 18 ang residente, apat (4) ang migrante at residente at isa (1) naman ang endemic.

Naitala sa bayan ng Lumban ang may pinakamataas na samu’t saring migratory bird species na matatagpuan. Samantala, naitala naman sa Calibato Lake ng Lungsod ng San Pablo ang may pinakamaraming bilang na naobserbahan na may kabuuang bilang na 880. 

Bilang pagkukumpara sa nakalap na datos noong 2021, tumaas ng 53.02 % mula 1,694 na bilang ay naging 3, 195 ang mga naobserbahan.

Ayon sa obserbasyon tumaas ang bilang ng mga migratory birds dahil sa 1) impluwensya ng temperatura at kondisyon ng panahon, 2) kamakailang pag-araro sa mga palayan na nagbibigay ng mga pagkain tulad ng insekto, maliliit na isda, mollusk, bulate at iba pang mga damo, at 3) pagkakaroon ng mga fish cage sa mga Lawa ng Calibato at Sampaloc na pinagmumulan ng pagkain ng mga migratory birds.

Sa susunod na taon, nakatakda ang pagsasagawa ng muling pagsusuri sa mga natukoy na mga Migratory Bird Sites at pagtukoy ng mga karagdagang Migratory Bird Sites.
