Tuguegarao City, Cagayan- In celebration of the first anniversary of the I Love Cagayan Movement: Seedlings of Hope with the theme: “Care for Nature, Save our Future,” Commercial and Industrial Sand and Gravel Permittees planted trees of hope last February 1, 2022.
The tree planting activity was the initiative of MGB ROII Regional Director Mario A. Ancheta as one of the activities of the mining industry in support of the movement.
The movement was launched last February 1, 2021 as a call to action upon all stakeholders for the restoration of the Cagayan River and all the river systems in Cagayan. This is through massive seeding production and tree growing.
RD Ancheta expressed his appreciation to the permittees who responded to his request, “thank you for planting these trees of hope. It is in this action that we say we really care for nature.”
“In return, it is from these roots we will grow sustenance,” RD Ancheta said.
A total of 845 bamboo propagules and 100 butterfly seedlings were planted by nine ISAG permit holders in Cagayan.
