Killing the Goose?
The Philippines, being archipelagic, has a total coastline of 36,289 kilometers with bays and coastal waters covering an area of 266,000 km². Being tropical, our coastal waters harbor mangroves, seagrasses, and coral reefs which are the habitat of fish, crustaceans, mollusks, and other aquatic organisms on which coastal communities and the Filipino nation depend on for a large portion of their food. However, land reclamation programs supposedly meant to increase economic activity, threaten these rich fishing grounds. Are we not killing the goose that lays golden eggs for our country through these “development activities”?
Take action now and learn more about the responses from different sectors and levels in the Philippines in our discussion on reclamation in the July 2022 installment of the Kamayan Para sa Kalikasan Forum entitled KILLING THE GOOSE? this coming July 15, 2022 from 2:30PM-5:30PM via Zoom and Facebook Live.
