PAMB asserts responsibility on Casamata Nat’l Park

>> Wednesday, April 26, 2017

BANGUED, Abra – The Protected Area Management Board of the Casamata Hill National Park in this capital town passed its first resolution for the year seeking proclamation of the CHNP as a protected landscape.
In their regular quarterly meeting facilitated by Parks Superintendent Saturnina Miguel last March 16,  PAMB  members unanimously agreed to push for protection of Casamata Hill, it being the “only breathing place of Bangued.”
The resolution was passed after delineation of final boundaries of the CHNP as the PAMB now pushes for stricter implementation of environmental laws to protect the area.
The PAMB resolution was adapted pursuant to Republic Act 7586 known as the National Integrated Protected Area System (NIPAS) Act of 1992.
The CHNP-PAMB aims to address problems and issues besetting the conservation, protection and management of the biological diversity of the area for its sustainable development.
Relative to this, the provincial government through its community affairs office headed by Rosemarie Collo presented to the PAMB its proposed cultural project to be established within the bounds of CHNP for the approval and support of the board.
PAMB is chaired by director Syd Vasquez.
In the same meeting,   Forester Shirley Tejero-Leano was introduced to the PAMB as the new PENR officer of Abra. -- PIA- CAR
