Calamba City, Laguna - 3rd of March marks the annual worldwide celebration of World Wildlife Day. Themed “Partnerships for Wildlife Conservation”, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) CALABARZON through its Conservation and Development Division conducted a weeklong wildlife exhibit from March 6-10, 2023.

The exhibit featured selected wildlife discovered in CALABARZON - the Hobbitoblatta lambioe, a newly discovered genus and species of cockroach in the majority of Luzon Island Group; and the Apomys banahao, also known as Mount Bahanaw Forest Mouse which is endemic to Mt. Banahaw - San Cristobal Protected Landscape (MBSCPL).

Collaboration projects with DENR CALABARZON partners were also showcased in the exhibit, the Philippine Eagle Survey conducted with the Philippine Eagle Foundation; NICER Program on Center for Cave Ecosystems Research with the University of the Philippines Los Baños Museum of Natural History; the Sarikulay project with the UP Ecology and Systematics Major Students Society; and with Wildlife Farm Permittees in the Region.

On the other hand, Dr. Marian P. De Leon, Director of the UPLB MNH gave her appreciation for this initiative, “ang pagtitipon na ito ay nakikita namin bilang isang magandang venue para makipag partner with student organizations and other conservation foundation or organizations in the Philippines.” She also initiated the youth to visit museums. “Patuloy po nating pangalagaan ang ating kapaligiran sa magiging appreciation ng mga susunod na henerasyon”, she added.

“Wildlife is integral to our future”, as expressed by Finance Chief Mabel Grasparil, as she represents the Office of Assistant Regional Director for Management Services Ronita Unlayao. In her message, she also highlighted the need for urgent awareness of the declining population of wildlife.

In 2022, DENR CALABARZON has acted on more than a hundred citizen reports on illegal wildlife trade, wildlife rescue, and other related concerns.

Calamba City, Laguna - The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) CALABARZON, Department of Transportation (DOTr), and Philippine National Railways (PNR) officially entered into a tripartite agreement for the facilitation of fast-tracked release of data regarding the South Long Haul Project (SLHP) last March 6, 2023.

The MOA aims to facilitate the expeditious release of data, including land records, particularly Technical Descriptions, Approved Plans, Lot Data Computations, Subdivision Plans, Certificate of No Records, Cadastral Maps, Lot Gaps, and other related documents.

The Parcellary Survey Package 1 under the SLHP is a project under the DOTr and PNR that aims to construct 380.38 kilometers of railway system, comprising 22 stations from Calamba, Laguna to Daraga, Albay. The railway system traverses Laguna and Quezon provinces in CALABARZON.

“We welcome the collaboration because it will help the mobility and transport of people and basic commodities”, DENR CALABARZON Regional Executive Director Nilo B. Tamoria expressed.

DOTr-PNR also expresses its appreciation for this partnership. “We hope for a swift facilitation of the requirements from DENR”, added PNR Assistant Secretary for Railways, Jorjette B. Aquino.

The partnership shall take effect upon its signing by both parties and shall remain in full force for a period of three (3) years, subject to renewal or termination upon mutual agreement by the parties.

Over 1,000 delegates from various public and private institutions across the country gathered for the 4th Philippine Environment Summit held in Tagaytay City last February 21-23, 2023.

            Organized by Green Convergence for Safe Food, Healthy Environment and Sustainable Economy in partnership with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), the summit’s primary objective was to provide a venue for the academe, local government units, non-government organizations, youth, and business sectors to share insights, exchange ideas, and foster convergence towards better, efficient, timely, and harmonized actions for the environment.

            “It is a great opportunity that leaders and representatives across all sectors are gathered here to strengthen our linkages and collaboration in addressing the climate emergency,” DENR CALABARZON Regional Executive Director Nilo Tamoria said in his welcome remarks as the environment head of the host region, looking forward to having meaningful sessions and inclusive discourse to arrive with sustainable solutions.

            “The DENR is here to listen. This is one of our activities wherein we feel there’s a very great opportunity for us to understand what issues and challenges we feel you might have in trying to actually work within this changing environment,” Environment Secretary Maria Antonia Yulo-Loyzaga said to the participants who were mostly composed of the youth.

            Themed “Caring for Earth: Scaling up Solutions to the Climate Emergency”, the three-day event focused on identifying collaborative solutions to the prevalent environmental issues such as climate change and ecological destruction.

            In her keynote message delivered by DENR Undersecretary Juan Miguel Cuna, Secretary Loyzaga highlighted the importance of confronting the climate emergency using a systems lens and through comprehensive risk management.

“Because we live in a multi-hazard environment and an interconnected world, the risks we face cut across communities, sectors and scales. The interventions we design to confront this complexity must therefore be trans-disciplinal, time-sensitive, and spatially-targeted, in order for them to be transformational,” she said.

During the session on youth and climate action, Secretary Loyzaga emphasized the importance of transdisciplinarity, saying “You cannot be disciplinal. You need to be trans-disciplinal to actually solve these complex issues that are facing us today. And by transdisciplinary work, I mean, you need to listen to communities, to non-traditional partners in society. Not just to your professors, not just to professional researchers, or to those who actually work within the communities and the communities themselves.”

            The summit included plenary and parallel sessions on: Quantification of Institutional Carbon Footprint; LGU Programs that Mitigate Climate Change; Corals and Mangrove Ecosystems as Carbon Sinks; Substitutes for Fossil Fuels; Conserving Mineral and Biological Resources to Minimize Fossil Fuel Use for Extraction, Manufacture and Damage Control; Alternative Technologies that Lower Energy Use; Initiatives of Communities Towards Environmental Protection; Environmental Programs that Involve and Empower the Youth; Developing Native Products and Systems; Business to Address Greenhouse Gas Emissions; Innovative Strategies to Effectively Communicate the Climate Emergency; and Programs that Highlight Key Ecosystems that Can Mitigate Climate Change. DENR Chief of Staff and Undersecretary for Strategic Communications, Marilou G. Erni also facilitated an interactive activity to solicit insights and ideas in crafting tailor-fitted youth programs.

            Started in 2016, Philippine Environment Summit is a biennial celebration of the Philippine environmental movement, inviting all sectors and institutions to come together to accelerate the drive towards sustainable development.
