Taken at: Balanga Wetland Park in Balanga, Bataan, Philippines

Today we went to the Balanga Wetlands to plant mangrove seedlings as part of our company’s social corporate responsibility.

We were a little late and the tide was already high. People were a little hesitant in going to the water. Plus, we were warned that we’ll be stepping on mud instead of sand.

Since we were already there, I decided to just go for it especially when I brought extra clothes.

Mangroves are essential to any seaside community because they (1) provide a safe breeding habitat for some species, (2) filter pollutants from run-off, and (3) prevent seaside erosion.

I’m glad to have been part of this activity!
