In consonance with this year’s theme of the International Coastal Clean-Up in the Philippines, over 2,000 volunteers representing 40 organizations, including government agencies, schools and private institutions, turned up for the annual event to gather all sorts of garbage that litter the coastal shores of the Freedom Islands in the Las Piñas-Parañaque Critical Habitat and Ecotourims Area (LPPCHEA) on Saturday (Sept. 16, 2017).  According to the DENR, which is co-organizer of the clean up activity, information on the collected marine debris will be collated and entered into a database by the Ocean Conservancy, for possible input in the crafting  of policies relating to the protection of the country’s water bodies. ###
