A 65-year-old man in Leyte has planted 10,000 mangroves for 8 years, He did it to protect his home from the big waves brought about by typhoons At the same time, he wanted to provide a breeding ground and a place for marine life to inhabit.

The recent typhoons have made everyone worry about how nature can be so unforgiving at times. But maybe humankind has to receive a part of the accountability.

According to a feature by the Philippine News Agency, Gary Dabasol just picked seedlings of mangroves species like miyapi, pagatpat, and bakawan along his area and he is now reaping the benefits of his plants.

In an interview, he said. “I’m glad that I was able to inspire people. I hope that they will also follow what I am doing. I also want to contribute to higher marine production by cultivating a spooning area for fish, crabs, and shrimps and other species.”

Because of sharing tatay Dabasol’s accomplishment, it will inspire others to follow his example in protecting the environment and marine ecosystem and also wished that the government would support him because what he did is extraordinary for one person.

It is never too late to start caring for our environment. We are not the only ones who will benefit from it but the future generations as well.
