Bohol takes part in a billion trees goal

Tagbilaran City, Bohol, May 27 (PIA)---ALREADY carving a name for its policies on environmental protection and conservation, such is not enough. 

Bohol’s distinction as the province to enact the country’s first environment ordinance, of keeping the honor of innovation in coastal environment management programs and a packet of man-made forest as proof, Boholanos could always shrug its shoulders over environmental disasters occurring elsewhere. 

But it did not because it can not. 

Still seeing a much bigger responsibility behind keeping a verdant Bohol, Governor Edgar Chatto announced Friday his vision of rallying Boholanos to positively contribute to the global adaptations against the ravishing effects of a threat brought about by global warming and climate change. 

At his weekly radio program aired live all over Bohol radios, Chatto announced the plan to launch Green Bohol reforestation and tree planting program to preserve the environment and anchor the province’s commitment to the one billion trees the Administration of President Benigno Simeon Aquino III is advocating. 

Green Bohol is a local adaptation of the Green Philippines which aims to put up an effective protection of the environment especially in fragile ecosystems while adopting sustainable management and use of natural resources, a National Economic Development Authority website said. 

And what’s a better launch date than on the day the country commemorates its Independence Day, which could also be symbolic of declaring freedom from these climate change spawned threats. 

The governor said Bohol is launching the program on June 12, one that is aimed to drum beat support for the activity that would be implemented simultaneously in all towns of Bohol the following week. 

“We remind our people of the individual launching of the tree planting activities to drum up our support for the tree planting is with the Independence Day program in the towns,” the governor stated on air. 

“This advocacy is also in line with our thrust of making Bohol a model province for environmental protection and sustainable environmental management,” he intoned. 

While the launching is done on June 12, Chatto said the actual planting under [Bohol] commitment is in time for the Arbor Day on June 25. 

He also urged the Boholanos to “do our share of greening Bohol as our contribution to the whole program not just of the country but to the whole world to positively contribute to the adaptations for climate change.” (Rey Anthony Chiu)
