Traversing the margins of Alabat Island reveals a small community in the coastal area of Brgy. 3.
To further execute the activities under the Coastal and Marine Ecosystem Management Program (CMEMP) of CENRO Calauag, a coastal cleanup and Information Education and Communication (IEC) campaign were organized and conducted by its personnel last 23 April 2021.
The aforesaid seeks to inform and mobilize the public in activities related to the protection and conservation of our coastal ecosystem and species thriving in and near the coasts of Brgy. 3.
Also, this is in support to the celebration of Earth Month with the theme, "Restore Our Earth."
Topics discussed during the awareness campaign were the Marine Turtle Biology, Handling and Rescue Response, as discussed by Assistant CMEMP Focal Person, FT I Hector S. Dañez; and theme and concept of Earth Day 2021, as explained by Forester Aleli C. Alvarez.
A total 15 sacks of coastal trash were recovered during the cleanup joined by thirty-three (33) participants from Alabat LGU, Barangay 3 LGU, Kabataan Kontra Droga at Terorismo (KKDAT), PNP Alabat, and CENRO Calauag.
It is expected that the CENRO Calauag under the management of CENR Officer Joselito D. Barros, will continuously conduct cleanup activities within the scope of its area of jurisdiction.
