"Green Alert Negros" starts

Bacolod City (13 May) -- The annual environmental activity of Green Alert Negros (GAN) dubbed "When the River Meets the Sea" starts today, to be joined by about 40 participants from different organizations in Negros Occidental.

The event will be until May 16 and to be conducted in the municipality of Hinobaan, in southern Negros.

This is the first time that GAN will organize two of its ecological camps "Panikang-tikang" and "Palawod".

Panikang-tikang is a mountaineering event aimed at looking into the current state of Negros forest, while Palawod is a coastal event which focuses on marine, the ecosystem.

This year's environmental event will be held in Hinobaan to look into the impacts of illegal timber poaching in the wilderness, which is the remaining 300 hectares lush forest of the municipality.

The event will also visit coastal areas of Hinobaan including the controversial Campomanes Bay in Sipalay, where Green Alert questioned the legality of the construction of a warehouse facility of EPO China Mining Corp. inside the bay.

For more than a decade, Green Alert's environmental camps were able to educate hundreds of Negrenses about the issues confronting the remaining natural resources of the province. (GAN/PIA/cad) [top]
