“Transparent governance is all about informing you, linking with you and involving you on Environment and Natural Resources pursuits”



Warm greetings and welcome to the Official Website of DENR Region XII.

This portal serves as our gateway of manifesting good governance on environmental management. Linking environmental management with good governance is paramount as addressing concerns on transparency, thus this website serves as our channel of fostering transparent governance.

Here, we are providing you with relevant and substantial information about our programs and projects in managing, conserving and protecting our environment and natural resources. We wanted to bring our services closer to our stakeholders and closer to the people.

The constant and steady stream of information sharing and communication helps build an epitome of a well-functioning bureaucracy.

Feel free to explore what Region XII cares and protects. We are within reach to respond to your environmental concerns. We hope that this could be a medium of creating environmental awareness, could generate acceptance of policies, programs and projects thereby mobilizing public participation.

Let us be part of this environmental advocacy.

God’s blessings to all stewards of the wonders and bounties of nature.



Regional Director





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.

From 2016 to 2017, the Sarangani Protected Area Management Board recorded nine (9) dugong strandings in SBPS. (MMAdam) Photos: CA Dandan
