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.
