Species living underwater are getting dangerous due to abusive human activities. Large portion of bodies of water are no longer safe for marine species. Coral reefs which serves as marine sanctuary are deteriorating due to illegal fishing and dangerous chemical dumped in the bodies of water. As a result, habitants under water are at risked. Their sources of food are affected and some of them are even suffering from physical injuries and often migrate from place to another to protect themselves from danger. To preserve the lives of marine species especially the marine mammals, the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Region 1 conducted the 4th National Philippines Marine Mammal Stranding Network Symposium for the municipal fisheries officers in the province. All concerned agencies were gathered at Baluarte Vigan City to participate in the activity. The BFAR discussed the things to be done by the rescuers to the marine mammals that are found near seashores suffering from bad conditions. “If we have a lot of marine mammals in our areas this means that they are secured in our place “. Mr. Nestor Dumenden added. Participants are encouraged to share this information to other citizens to create awareness in preserving the lives of marine mammals. Every local government unit has a vital role in taking care of our natural resources. It starts down the line where communities should be active and oblige themselves to contribute in the preservation of our country’s wealth.
