The activity which aims to raise awareness on the conservation of migratory birds and other fauna species was participated in by the residents near the said protected areas (PAs) and employees from the DENR V Regional Office, the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENRO) of Masbate and the Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) of Mobo.
