Orientation on Protected Area Mgt. and Biodiversity Conservation Held

A two-day orientation onorientation paws resized Protected Area Management and Biodiversity Conservation Policies was recently conducted by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR-XI) through its Conservation and Development Division (CDD) held at Marco Polo Hotel Davao, Davao City.
The said orientation was attended by all designated OIC Chief PAWS of the different PENROs/CENROs of the region together with their respective Provincial Planning Officers.
Assistant Regional Director for Technical Services Atty. Felix S. Alicer said that it is significant to enhance the knowledge of the personnel on such policies in order to expand their understanding and competencies while pursuing their deliverables. 
“The only way to learn is to expose your ignorance.  We have to be familiar with these basic policies as well as know about our functions being in an agency mandated to conserve and manage the environment and natural resources of the country,” said Alicer.
Protected Area Management & Biodiversity Conservation Section OIC, Chief Marigelaine V.  Arguillas also emphasized that the Department does not only implement local legislations but is also linking other countries in the agreement.  “We do not represent the DENR alone but we are also carrying the name of our country the reason why it is important to know the basic rules and provisions of the laws so we will know how to dispense our judgements and decisions towards our clients,” Arguillas said.
Among the policies included in the discussion were: National Integrated Protected Areas System Act; Marine Ecosystems Policies; Wildlife Resources, Conservation and Protection Act and; National Cave Resources, Management and Protection Act.  
A lecture on Climate Change was also conducted by the Regional Public Affairs Office (RPAO) during the orientation.
Moreover, the said event also included the celebration of “World Wildlife Day 2015” bannering the theme “Wildlife Crime Is Serious, Let’s Get Serious About Wildlife Crime.”  World Wildlife Day is celebrated on May 3 of every year.
