Last February 7, Saturday, the City Local Environment and Natural Resources Officer (CLENRO), together with several groups in CdO, lead the Mangrove planting activity and also paved the way to replant damaged mangrove seedlings at the coastal area of Barangay Bonbon. The activity was supported by at least 50 participants who planted more than 100 mangrove seedlings around the shoreline.
On October 11, 2014, Primavera Residences team went to the same coastal area in Barangay Bonbon and joined the mangrove planting activity conducted by Philippine Air Force TOG 10 and students from the Misamis Oriental General Comprehensive High School (MOGCHS).
“We all know that mangrove forests provide protection and shelter against extreme weather events, such as storm winds and floods. That is why this eco-friendly activity is perfect for a coastal city like Cagayan de Oro,” Gisselle Mantilla, ITPI Admin Officer, said.
In the case of Cagayan de Oro which has been hit several times with super typhoons, mangroves provide a buffer against extreme weather conditions like storms, tsunamis, cyclones, and floods.
With the wide array of mangroves protecting the shoreline, it could definitely benefit the coastal communities that are prone to calamities in CdO for mangrove trees absorb and disperse tidal surges.
“We plant mangroves for the benefit of the city’s residents. We sustain our environment for the greater good of the community. We develop our community through the efforts of these committed institutions. We may have started it but one day, little will we know, everyone is with us changing CdO, changing the Philippines,” Jecris Salon, ITPI Financial Accountant, expressed.
Primavera Residences is designed to withstand strong earthquakes, typhoons, and other natural calamities, while its elevated location at 110 meters above sea level makes it flood-free and ideal for safe, hassle-free, and convenient eco-friendly living.
Its developer, Italpinas Euroasian Design and Eco-development Corporation (ITPI), a sustainable real estate developer, takes part in actively promoting green advocacies in the city.
