800 mangrove propagules planted in Zamboanga City coastal zone – Mayor Climaco


Some 800 mangrove propagules were planted at the coastal areas of Barangay Mampang in Zamboanga City Sunday, February 28, Mayor Beng Climaco said.

The city government through the Office of the City Environmental and Natural Resources (OCENR) provided the technical assistance and planting materials to partner agencies, civic groups and security sector for the rehabilitation of the mangrove areas.

“The wetlands planting activity is in line with the City’s ongoing rehabilitation, reforestation and enhancement efforts on city-managed Mangrove Areas in consonance with the recently adopted Forest Land Use Plan (FLUP) and the Framework Plan for Central Mangrove Forest of Zamboanga City covering seven coastal barangays,” Climaco said.

The same is in line with the World Wetlands Celebration this February, she added.
