TEAM “WENDY” OF PENRO PANGASINAN CELEBRATES

WORLDS WETLANDS DAY

           

      February 2nd of every year is declared World Wetlands day with the theme “Wetlands for our future”. However, the DENR-PENRO Pangasinan celebrated the activity with their own created theme “WENDY” which means “Wetlands Exposure on Natures Day for Youth”.

          It can be recalled that on February 2, 1971, Ramsar Convention declared this month as the official celebration of Wetlands Day

          Aiming to further sustain continuously, conserve and preserve our wetlands resources, PENRO Pangasinan personnel headed by PENRO Officer Leduina Co together with CENRO Narciso Aragon of Alaminos and personnel from CENRO Urdaneta converged in Lingayen Pangasinan to celebrate this meaningful event.

          The occasion was highlighted by a visit to the Bangrin wetlands in Bani, Pangasinan, where able to view the different migratory birds and some small ducks.  According to CENRO Alaminos, there were 122 birds species that usually frequent the area. We were also able to see the fully grown mangroves with propagules ready for harvest.  There are 16 species mangroves planted in the area which are now fully grown and serves as the nestling places and sources of nourishment for the migratory birds. However, without the presence of these natural resources, the plight of their breeding grounds would be impossible. An island hopping/boating to the world famous park, Hundred Islands National Park (HINP) in Alaminos, Pangasinan ensued.

 

      The highlight of the event was the mangrove planting where a group of students from different educational institutions conscientiously participated in this activity at the Mangrove Farm in Alaminos City.

 

          PENRO Wendy Co in her message stressed that “the activity intends to contribute to the knowledge of the students or youths of different schools on what wetlands are and for them to explore these natural resources and to have knowledge of what DENR programs are doing towards their conservation and protection including familiarity with  the wildlife animals habiting the areas”.

           Janella Sarmiento, a student of University of Luzon, commented that the activity undertaken, like sightseeing, is much appreciated, because it was her first time to join the DENR in planting mangroves.  She also suggested that “IEC alone is not sufficient enough to learn about the importance of wetlands and awareness of other DENR programs, but the best way of educating them is for them to visit the concerned sites”.

 

         After the mangrove planting, the participants proceeded to Sual Pangasinan to visit the Sual Power Plant to see for themselves the mechanics on how the plant generates the power being distributed to the various places in Pangasinan.

          The Chief Operations of Sual Power Plant briefed the participants on the vision and mission of the power plant, and on how the power is radiating to various establishments in the area and serving other clients in other regions like CAR and NCR. Also, he discussed the process of how they discharge the water from the plant and showed the machinery generating power.  The plant Engineer also discussed how environment friendly their company is because they reuse and treat their water before it is released to the sea.     (A.

    RED Juan Reviews R1’s Q3 performance

    RED Juan Reviews R1’s Q3 performance

     

    Tubao, La Union – DENR 1.          The Regional Executive Director (RED) Reynulfo A. Juan welcomed all the participants as he urged them to always “better your best” by actively taking charge and leading their respective offices to perform better in the remaining months of 2018 during the Regional Management Conference. He expressed his appreciation to the hard-work and dedication of the employees for doing the job as expected but should not be too complacent though, as the year comes to close.

     

    RED Juan gave an update on what he has been doing for the DENR in this part of the country worth mentioning is his visit to the different National Greening Program (NGP) sites in La Union and in Ilocos Sur even at the height of the typhoon. He also shared his experience during his visit to Coquimbo, Chile, where he represented the DENR during the conduct of the ‘Exchange of Experience to Add Value to Organic Wastes from Small-scale Fisheries and Aquaculture through its reuse and Conversion into Innovative Products, which contribute to enhanced food security.’ He shared his learning on the best practices he observed during the international visit which was also participated by representatives from other countries. RED Juan also underscored the message of DOT Sec. Puyat during the opening of the (new) Boracay Island saying that the “rehabilitation does not stop in Boracay, this effort will continue entire the country” including Ilocos Region.

     

    The Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officers (PENROs) presented the status of their performance in terms of the NGP programs with some concerns on the maintenance of the plantation sites during the rainy season and summer. The RED recommends to the heads of the field offices to report the actual situation to back them up from any liability if it is caused by natural calamities. It is reminded that they should visit at least 5 NGP sites, know the status and ‘take ownership’ of their jurisdiction.

     

    As the head of office, RED Juan felt sad by the wrath of the 2 typhoons which left its rage in the northern part of the Luzon leaving numerous casualties in Regions 2 and CAR. Thus, he expressed his concern on the safety of all personnel by reminding the need to be ready and inspect the office building every now and then, check for some oddities in the area to avoid any tragic event citing what happened with the DPWH building in Natoni, Mountain Province.

     

    During the 1st Day of the Management Conference, the Regional Management also recognized the collaboration efforts of the Philippine National Police as partners in the enforcement of environmental laws.

     

    Ecosystems Research and Development Bureau (ERDB) Division Chief, Ms. Aida Lapis presented their findings and recommendation on bamboo propagation related to the Green Livelihood program of here in Region 1. Their findings will enhance the propagation of bamboo specie in the region as well as its economic dimension towards a sustainable development. They have recommended the need of continuous information, education and communication drive including consistency of extension service and to strengthen the collaboration with partner agencies on the added value of bamboo.

     

     

    Over-all, DENR 1 maintains its rank as a performing field office in the implementation of its mandate to protect and conserve the environment in the countryside. The RED urged the regional officials to innovate and be creative in the implementation of the programs and projects most importantly in the effective and efficient utilization of funds. This also includes the intervention of the agency to the different ENR projects of the congressional district representatives in Ilocos Region. It’s line bureaus Environmental Management Bureau and Mines and Geosciences likewise presented their accomplishments.

     

    With RED’s Juan’s dynamism, it is hoped that the frontline crew of the DENR become resilient and could adapt to the enthusiasm of the RED in implementing the mandate of the agency.

     

    Finally, RED Juan quipped “let us walk the extra mile and think out of the box in serving the public,” as he closes the Management Conference. (RAS-RPAO)
