By on July 28, 2017

During the Environment Law Enforcement Training and Workshop at the Nueva Vizcaya State University (NVSU) Training Center in Bayombong on July 27, Governor Carlos M. Padilla talked on the importance of the environment and highlighted on the progress of the province through agriculture and eco-tourism.

The said training was implemented by Friends for Environment Development and Sustainability (FRENDS) and were attended by representatives from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENARO), and from the communities surrounding the Mount Palali Ranges.

A month ago, some scientists had a courtesy call with the Governor. The scientists visited Mount Palali and stayed in the province for 18 days to study a rare species discovered in there known as “Brachymeles Muntingkamay.” This is a species of lizards with reduced limbs and typically found in dry, rotting materials, decaying logs, loose soil, and forest debris.

However, participants gave their testimonies regarding the said species claiming that they already seen such in Kasibu. #bg
