Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) of Manukan in coordination with the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Dipolog and City Environment and Natural Resources Office, facilitated the Orientation on Basic Handling of Marine Turtles and Wildlife Act on February 10, 2022 at Top Plaza Hotel in Dipolog City.
About 23 employees from the Dipolog City Boulevard, City Environment and Natural Resources and City Agricultural Office attended the event.
The orientation aims to explain proper care and handling of marine turtles since there has been an increasing number of marine turtles hatchlings emerging in Dipolog City Boulevard. Proper handling of hatchlings is a must so as not to alter their imprinting process or making memories on the place they were hatched.
