Sierra Madre: Storm Buffer
“With the increasing incidence of devastating typhoons over the years, the slopes and peaks of Sierra Madre have stood their ground to buffer storms before they hit inland and create more havoc. But the Laguna-Quezon Land Grant (LQLG) team believes we may not have this luxury for long.
“The massive deforestation in the area has significantly weakened the mountain,” said For. Reynaldo E. Lorida, LQLG area manager.
This issue is being addressed by the LQLG team launching of the #Greening4SierraMadre campaign that took place during the LQLG 88th Foundation Day at Brgy. Magsaysay, Siniloan, Laguna on Feb. 9.
The campaign encourages everyone to help save the Sierra Madre by planting and growing trees in the mountain range.”
FEED runs a number of Students and Volunteers for the Environment (SAVE); Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) – such as mangrove planting for coastal protection or ridge reforestation plantings; One Child, One Tree; Bio-Intensive Gardens (BIG) for nutrition in public elementary schools and other spaces; Climate Change Survival 101 and other LIVING LEGACY programs – customised environmental engagement activities for individuals and organisations interested in contributing to climate change adaptation efforts and greening critical areas such as watersheds, ridges, and reefs that all require rehabilitation.
