PUERTO PRINCESA CITY, Palawan – IN an effort to help save the environment from unscrupulous individuals and indiscriminate utilization of natural resources, the Puerto Princesa Police Office (PPPO) launched the “Kaligtasan at Kalikasan” (KALIGKASAN) Volunteer Program, with the Mass Oath Taking Ceremony at the Puerto Princesa City Coliseum here, May 30.

The program is a project of the PNP that supports government actions for environmental protection and preservation.

Prior to the mass oath taking, the participants first attended a one-day training seminar at the VJR Hall, Capitol Complex on May 28 to be familiarized of the program components with lecturers from Puerto Princesa Police Office, Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, the Department of Agriculture, and the local government units.

The lecture were on various subjects such as KALIGKASAN duties and responsibilities, Law on Fishery, Law on Aquatic Resources, DENR Program and Environmental Laws and also city ordinances and other environmental protection-related issuances.

Diverse groups from barangay functionaries, youth leaders, industry representatives and other stakeholders participated in the activities that culminated with a coastal clean-up activity at the city baywalk area last Friday, May 31.

The newly organized KALIGKASAN volunteers are expected to work hand in hand with the tourist police in ensuring the safety and security of the local and foreign tourists who visit their area and as environmental warriors.

They will also actively participate in environmental protection projects such as but not limited to tree-planting, clean-up drive, information drive on responsible use of natural resources and protection in the locality.|#BALIKAS_News
