 DENR BICOL OBSERVES CORAL TRIANGLE, WORLD OCEAN’S DAY IN LEGAZPI CITY

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) V observed the Coral Triangle and World Ocean’s Day in Legazpi City.

Drupella collection was undertaken by the divers of the DENR V at the Tagbon Reef, which is found off the shores of Barangay Puro, Legazpi City on June 8, 2018.

Drupella are sea snails covered with small spikes, which feed on live coral tissues and leave scars that can be quickly covered by algae. Research studies attributed these marine mollusks for contributing to the significant decrease of corals and reduced reef resilience. Collection of these invasive species proved to be effective in coral preservation.

Moreover, a photo exhibit on coral reefs is currently on display at the DENR V Regional Office lobby at Rawis, Legazpi City.

DENR V calls on the public to join the observance of various environmental celebrations and to “walk the talk” in the conservation and preservation of the environment and natural resources.
