Mangrove Planting May 31, 2008 Dumlog, Talisay

You like seafood? Seafood is a great source of protein and is high in Omega 3 fatty acids which are heart-friendly, reducing the risk of heart disease and taste so very very good.

Do you know that A HECTARE OF HEALTHY MANGROVE TREES can help PRODUCE ABOUT 1.08 TONS OF FISH PER YEAR? And do you know that mangrove trees can LIVE UP TO MORE THAN A HUNDRED YEARS?

Can you imagine how much seafoods that is?

But the reality is during the last hundred years, the Philippine coastal areas LOST 300,000 HECTARES of mangrove forest. It is estimated that all mangrove forests in the Philippines could be gone in less than 40 years. It can happen in your lifetime! There will be no more seafood for you and your children.

BUT WE CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! Join iSTORYA.NET and the Coastal Conservation and Education Foundation in its weekend effort to restore a mangrove forest in Dumlog, Talisay.
