  • The Recyclable Waste Fair: An Environmental Awareness-Raising Event*
    Once again, I take pleasure in extending my warmest felicitations to the Provincial Government of
    South Cotabato led by Governor Arthur Y. Pingoy for spearheading the 3rd South Cotabato Recyclable
    Waste Fair. The management of solid waste in this part of the country has been elevated into a creative
    and a festive activity through the holding of the biennial recyclable waste fair. Certainly, South Cotabateños
    do not run out of good ideas in its advocacy of recycling in order to manage garbage.




The DENR XII office of the Protected Area Superintendent in partnership with the Conservation and Development Division initiated the Training Workshop on Dugong Conservation and Monitoring of the Sarangani Bay Protected Seascape (SBPS) at Greenleaf Hotel in General Santos City from December 8-10.

Dr. Lemnuel Aragones, director of the University of the Philippines Institute of Environmental Science and Meteorology and Head of the Marine Mammal Resource and Stranding Laboratory speaks with some 35 participants from LGUs covered by the SBPS and partner enforcement agencies.

The activity focuses on addressing the issues on dugong strandings in SBPS. SWOT Analysis and Mapping of Potential Threats in Sarangani Bay are among the tools used to analyze the situation.
