DENR Bicol proposes expansion of Catanduanes Natural Parkpr6

What could be smallest now in terms of land area as a province may turn out to be the biggest protected area in the entire Region as the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) seeks to expand the Catanduanes  Watershed Forest Reserve (CWFR) from 26,000 hectares (ha) to 48,831 ha.

The National Mapping and Resource Information Authority (NAMRIA) and DENR V Land Evaluation Party in their recent field validation  found CWFR suitable for proclamation under the National Integrated Protected Areas System (NIPAS) owed to its old growth forest consisting mostly of Dipterocarp or hardwood species. It also covers 10 municipalities including Bagamanoc, Baras, Caramoran, Gigmoto, Pandan, Panganiban, San Andres, San Miguel, Viga, and Virac. The watershed forest reserve has potable water that support domestic and agricultural uses and could supply sufficient water for energy generation. It also harbors important plant and animal species in habitats fit for recreation and adventure.
