DENR tags, frees sea turtles in Sorsogon

DENR Sorsogon headed by PENRO Rene Camacho together with Protected Areas, Wildlife and Coastal Zone Management Sector (PAWCZMS) Division Chief, PIO Annabelle M. Barquilla and other DENR Provincial Office’s personnel tagged three (3) hawksbills and one (1) green sea turtle on February 27, 2014. The same group released them on February 28, 2014 into the seawaters of Brgy. Caricaran, Bacon District, Sorsogon City.

The four (4) marine turtles were recovered by the DENR Provincial PAWCZMS from the residents of Brgy. Abuyog, Sorsogon City.

DENR continuously calls on the public not to domesticate these animals. Instead, they should be turned over the authorities who can release them to their natural habitat.

The release, it was noted, coincided with the DENR Bicol People’s Day activity.

DENR RED Gilbert Gonzales said that the DENR’s continuous information and education campaign is paying off, as the public turns over to their office an increasing number of marine wildlife. (PIA/DENR)
