Mangrove Planting in Danao (October 28, 2009)

By: Arturo Valdez

After breakfast at the local Dept of Agriculture office, we proceeded to the Civic Center to hold our regular symposium that lasted until noontime.  Then lunch at the 20 hectares fish sanctuary. The highlight of the day was the mangrove planting of “bakawan.” The real challenge was not the planting but how to negotiate the thigh-deep mud before one can find the space to do the planting. We practically had to make use of our “gymnastic” skills in keeping our balance but after awhile we succeeded in planting all the seedlings prepared for the day.
