CSR Pagbilao Mangrove Tree Planting

Pagbilao Magrove Tree Planting

Research Center, Quezon Province

Pagbilao Mangrove

This mangrove forest is a living proof of a successful rehabilitation effort. Even before World War II, the area was a favorite to poachers who gather the “bakawan” which is a very good material for charcoal. In 1975, the 145 hectare area was declared as Pagbilao Mangrove Experimental Forest by virtue of Bureau of Forest Development (BFD) Administrative Order No. 7 (s. 1975). This declaration provided the necessary protection (and funding) and further poaching was prevented. Now, the diverse ecosystem makes the area a favorite field trip destination mostly of botany and zoology students from prestigious universities. Now haven for photographers and Corporate outings.

October 26 to 27, 2012

 

“This is our primary source of livelihood. If we do not take care of it, there might be a time when we will have nothing to eat,” says Mr. Laudico Perez, SUGPO President, the Samahang Ugnayan ng Pangisdaan ng Orion “Who else will take care of it except for us who benefit from the sea?

Two mangrove nurseries were established in Balut and Camachile, where propagules are nurtured prior to reforestation. Harvesting of propagules is conducted only during January to May because of limited propagules. Nonetheless, the organization encourages its members to continually collect propagules. Mangrove species nurtured include bakauan lalake (Rhizophora Apiculata), bakauan babae (Rhizophora mucronata), bungalon (Avicennia marina) and pagatpat (Sonneratia alba). Nipa seeds are also being propagated, and if successful will be planted along the rivers.The organization will be strengthening its mangrove reforestation and fishery surveillance operations in the coming months through capacity building for its members. One major activity is also to develop second-tier of leaders to ensure the continuity of the organization. An information and public awareness campaign will also be undertaken to increase the mass-based support for coastal and marine management in the Municipality.

Taal Lake and Volcano Tour

TAAL Lake Cruise and Island Volcano Tour

http://mothernatureasia.multiply.com/photos/album/17

http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=121909981175324

Taal Volcano is a highly active volcano at the heart of a larger protected area established in 1996.  The Taal Volcano Protected Landscape is composed of over 65,000 hectares in 13 towns and 3 cities, including Lipa City, Tanauan City and Tagaytay.

The entire area is a land of mystery and shrouded in myths.  Most of the tourism is concentrated on Tagaytay Ridge and the shoreline of Talisay town.  There are, however, other entry points to the crater as well as other attractions that a visitor would find interesting.

Pusod offers a glimpse of the ancient past of the region, debunking myths told about this mysterious caldera, exploring the archeological and biological mysteries from the viewpoint of scientists themselves all from the gentler side of the lake where the Tagalog culture is still most evident.

Pusod is primarily an environmental education NGO.  No other tour can offer the wealth of information on the lake basin that Pusod can, as we were instrumental in all the 16 consultations undertaken for the management plan of the lake basin.   Our tours also ensure as little economic leakage as possible, ensuring that local businesses are patronized and accredited guides regale you with the lake’s legends and  the culture in the heartland of the Batangueños.   Experts on Taal: a biologist, a geophysicist and an archeologist/journalist will also be guiding you by audio (on an MP3 we will loan you).

ITINERARY

6:30/7:  departure for an 8 am arrival in Taal Lake (site of future Taal Lake Conservation Center) short video presentation, don lifevest & get on the boat,

9:30  Arrive on Volcano Island Calauit side (cleaner, less crowded), get on horses or trek, take in the views

Crater Magic – view Vulcan Point – an island within a lake within an island within a lake within an island.  Meditation and quiet time or chatting with island residents on the history of eruptions.  Cold lemon grass tea, suman and fruits in season.

10:00 am Start riding down the volcano (optional swim in shallow portion in the middle of the lake)

11:30 Back at TLCC, Enjoy a sumptuous lunch of native and Batangas fusion cuisine, fresh buko on the shell.

After lunch, optional activities, including swimming, kayaking, biking, etc.

Back in Manila whatever time you like.
