Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Secretary Roy A. Cimatu looks on as former beauty queen Lorraine Schuck (in light-colored dress) jumpstarts the nurturing of a Dau (Dracontomelon dao) seedling that she planted at the Heroes Park of the DENR during the agency’s 30th anniversary celebration on Friday. Schuck is the executive vice-president and one of the founders of Carousel Productions, which runs the Miss Earth and Miss Philippines Earth beauty pageants, and  partner of the DENR in promoting environmental programs and advocacies. Dau is a large native tree that provides shade to smaller trees. Also in photo are candidates of the Miss Philippines Earth 2017. ###
