For Arbor Day, almost 8,000 mangrove buds were planted in Zambo City.

As part of the city’s participation in the national Arbor Day event, at least 8,520 mangrove propagules were planted on the coast of Barangay Barangay Talon-Talon on Saturday.

“Arbor Day na Zamboanga” saw 3.4 hectares of planting at a government-owned and -managed mangrove site under the Office of the City Environment and Natural Resources (OCENR).

Around 1,400 people from various local and national government departments, the academic community, non-governmental organizations, and the security sector participated in planting mangrove propagules, according to Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco-Salazar, who oversaw the project.

Salazar remarked, “I thank the OCENR for consistently pursuing steps to protect and maintain our environment.

During the event, Edison Delos Reyes, an OCENR employee, received a Certificate of Recognition for his commitment to service, despite the fact that it nearly cost him his life.

Delos Reyes was on duty at the city government’s mangrove conservation site in Barangay Talon-Talon on May 17 when poachers attacked and hacked him.

The Philippine government has made it official that everyone in the country observes Arbor Day on June 25 by planting trees, flowering plants, and participating in other appropriate activities.

Its goal is to inspire people to plant trees, and numerous localities customarily use the occasion to conduct tree-planting and trash-collecting initiatives.
