    From Illegal Fishers to Marine Protectors

    They used to be illegal fishers, that is why they used dynamites so as to get more fish along the coastal waters of Amlam and neighboring towns in Negros Oriental. Using typical nets and outdated fishing gears made it more difficult for them to earn adequately.

    Citing the latest Poverty Incidence of the Basic Sectors report of the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB), fishermen in the country are still the poorest among the country's nine basic sectors with a poverty incidence of 41.4 percent.

    Amlan MENRO Led The Biophysical Monitoring Of MPA

    I am sharing with you some photos taken during the round 2 community/ participatory biophysical monitoring of two Amlan MPAs in March 2012. Mr. Job D. Tagle, MENRO of Amlan, led the monitoring team--- from the review of monitoring protocols, to actual data gathering and analysis.

We plan to hold another session perhaps in the last quarter of this year to capacitate the monitoring team to compare two dat ...

People of all ages, male or female, would ride daily in a tricycle to reach their destinations. Wives would go to the market daily to buy fish and vegetables and other needs of the family.
