The Forest Management Bureau (FMB) together with the Biodiversity Management Bureau (BMB) marched to Manila Bay last January 6, 2020 as 150 employees bonded together to conduct cleanup activities at the Manila’s Baywalk area and Baseco beach, as part of the ongoing rehabilitation of the Manila Bay.
The cleanup was inspired by the “New Year’s Call” of DENR Secretary Roy Cimatu to increase the visibility of the DENR in its efforts to rehabilitate Manila Bay. Cleanup activities will be conducted from January 6 to 10, 2020 by the DENR central and field offices, bureaus, and attached agencies. The first two days of the cleanup was led by Assistant Secretaries Ricardo Calderon and Corazon Davis along with FMB Director Lourdes Wagan and Assistant Director Edna Nuestro. Other representatives from the National Water Resources Board, DENR Central Office, and Land Management Bureau (LMB) will also participate in the week-long cleanup.
