The Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENRO) of Rizal through the Monitoring and Enforcement Section conducted a re-orientation meeting for its Forest Protection Officers (FPO) and other field personnel regarding proper intelligence gathering and reporting, as well as the licenses and permits on wildlife and forestry.

The event aims to remind the incumbent workforce and capacitate the newly hired FPOs on their duties and responsibilities. Several key topics were discussed, including the actual operations on the field and the precautionary measures involved in intelligence gathering which include counterintelligence and clandestine activities on the field. Moreover, wildlife and forestry regulatory processes were also discussed to the participants, particularly, the new DENR Administrative Orders on the issuance of the relevant permits, licenses, and other documents.

The Monitoring and Enforcement Section, with the support of PENRO Rizal Technical Services Division Chief, Ernesto M. Diso Jr., concluded the activity by reminding the participants to protect their identities and prioritize their safety during the conduct of their assigned tasks, all while dedicating themselves towards environmental service and forest protection. ###
