The Mangrove Tree Growing will be held on August 4, 2019 in Barangay Baybay, Alubijid, Misamis Oriental.
This is a social activity initiated by select 2019 Environmental Planners of Northern Mindanao in partnership with ItalPinas Development Corp. – Primavera Residences.
With the theme “2019 EnP NorthMin Gives Back” the group is geared towards making the community a better place to live in and to proactively minimize the impact of climate change specially to aquatic resources.
What is a Mangrove Tree and why is it important in the environment? A Mangrove is a small tree or shrub that grows on saline or brackish water, commonly on coastlines. The importance of planting mangrove trees are: (1) to protect vulnerable coastlines from wave action and soil erosion, and (2) it serves as vegetation and home for all species in the water.
The mangroves will be planted along the coastline of Brgy. Baybay, Alubijud which is identified by the Municipality as one of the critical areas, as it is prone to flooding due to the rise of sea level during high tide or tropical surge.
Joined by the social activists and environment advocates, the 2019 propagates commemorate the batch year of the Environmental Planners of who led this activity: EnP Geran John T. Flores, EnP Herbert Serrano, EnP Aurell Toledo, EnP Ma. Melody D. Carpio, and EnP Angelie Azcuna-Collera.
