This post seemed to be long overdue. But I still wanted to because this one’s one of the important celebrations the country commemorated this year, the Wetlands Day Celebration in Philippines 2014.
The Wetlands Day Celebration in Philippines 2014 was just on February 02, 2014. I have not personally attended the said celebration in any of the five Wetland Areas in the country but I just want to virtually celebrate it with you guys since I do believe that there are still hopes for the betterment of the wetlands in our country.
The five sites identified as “Wetlands of International Importance” or Ramsar Sites by Swiss-based Ramsar Convention on Wetlands in the country are the Agusan Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary in Mindanao, Naujan Lake National Park in Oriental Mindoro, Olango Island Wildlife Sanctuary in Cebu, Tubbataha Reefs National Marine Park, and Puerto Princesa Underground River in Palawan.
Only the Agusan Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary I have visited from the five mentioned above because it is the most accessible from our place. And telling you, it is a privilege to witness how the area has been preserved and how it has been taken cared of.
