Naic local government conducts mangrove reforestation activity

The local government of Naic has taken steps to protect its marine and coastal resources by launching its mangrove planting/reforestation program.

Personnel from the different offices of the local government took part in the activity, which was conducted along with members of the Bantay Dagat and employees of the Analog Devices Company.

They were able to plant 4,000 mangrove propagules in Barangay Bucana.

The local government underscored the importance of mangroves for coastal areas. It said these act as breakwaters and also act as shelter for various marine life.

“Ang Brgy. Bucana Sasahan ay nakaharap sa baybayin ng Manila Bay kung kaya’t ang programa ay magiging kapakipakinabang hindi lamang para sa residente nito kundi na rin sa buong Bayan ng Naic,” it said.
