Mangroves take center stage in the observance of May as the “Month of the Ocean” focusing on their role as natural barriers against tsunamis and storm surges during extreme weather conditions thus protecting coastal communities.

The theme for this year’s celebration was “Mangroves protect. Protect mangroves,” as emphasized by Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Ramon Paje.

In a statement, Paje said the theme was timely and significant in light of the destruction wrought by Super-typhoon Yolanda, the strongest tropical typhoon ever to make landfall, which devastated Eastern Visayas last November. It became an instant education for the Filipino people on what storm surges are, and was a rude awakening of sorts on the state of our coastal communities with their lack of protection from these natural events.

Mangroves protect us not only from strong waves and storm surges, but also help clean the air and water along our coastal zones, and provide food security and livelihood to the communities. It can help coastal communities adapt to climate change.

“We hope everyone now appreciates and understands, more than ever, the importance of protecting and rehabilitating our mangrove forests,” said Paje.

As a strong partner in the preservation of mangroves in this part of the province, the Philippine Science High School—Bicol Region Campus, together with its partners, the Community Environment & Natural Resources Office (CENRO-Partido) and the Local Government Unit Of Sag?ay , Camarines Sur, conducted the Ocean Month celebration with the following events: May 28—kickoff lecture for the three barangay councils, constituents and SK representative;  May 29- radio interview and campaign on RP FM station, MUEWSTATION and KM-FM Goa about the importance of mangroves with Ma’am Minette as guest; and May 30—simultaneous mangrove planting in Barangays Nato, Del Carmen and Turaque, all are the nearby barangays along the estuary area in Sag?ay. There were 100 participants from the three barangays, BantayDagat group, CENRO personnel , and this school’s personnel.

Presidential Proclamation No. 57 issued in 1999 declared May as the Month of the Ocean.

The law mandates the DENR and the Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources to spearhead the observance of Ocean Month and highlight the need to conserve and protect the country’s coastal and ocean resources.

The Philippines is home to 47 true mangrove and mangrove associate species.

Because Parenting Never Stops


By Ann Camille B. Fajardo and Angela Claire R. Panes

Sophomore year’s English class has a poem titled “First Lesson”; it depicts a father teaching his daughter how to swim in the sea of opportunities. This sea, though it presents good things to the daughter, could endanger her life. However, he needs to let her swim amid the cascading tides.

The results came two months before the usual schedule of release (which is...
