History of Buug, Zamboanga Sibugay, Philippines
The annals of Buug’s history relates that the name Buug was derived from the word “bog”, a Subanen word for second growth forest which means the same as the Cebuano-Visayan term buog. According to history, a group of Subanens stumbled upon this “bog” that was blessed with a stream and sufficient supply of water while they were moving from one place to another in search of a safe place to start a living away from marauders who were in search for slaves and things to loot. From then on people began to refer to the “bog” as Buug.
Buug grew into a thriving community through the initiative of the Timuays who held leadership of the community. Word spread out and attracted other settlements to the area. A school was opened which drew in the first trickle of Subanen, Cebuano, and Visayan settlers. And when the Samar Mining Company (SAMICO) opened the Sibuguey project in 1957 at Bobuan (now part of the daughter municipality of Bayog) the next group of settlers flooded in. The same thing happened when the Pagadian-Zamboanga National Highway reached Buug in 1958.
Heavy flocking of newcomers followed when Buug became a municipality through Executive Order No. 380 issued by President Carlos P. Garcia on February 2, 1960. Instrumental to the materialization of this important milestone of Buug was the persistence and hard work of Quirino M. Gonzales, former councilor of Malangas, to pull through until the completion of the goal to make Buug a municipality. Gonzales became the first appointed mayor and was called the Father of Buug.
At present, Buug remains to be one of the thriving social and economic hubs of Zamboanga Sibugay. Credit institutions and commercial businesses have multiplied. Appliance centers and merchandisers with main branches in big cities have invested in the area. Cottage industries have sprouted. Buug being strategically located at the boundary of Zamboanga Del Sur has likewise become a convergence of economic activity.
Moving Buug’s economy are two sectors categorized by the local government; 1.) Agriculture (farming, livestock & poultry, and fisheries) and, 2.) Service Activities (trade/commerce & industry, finance, personal and community services). Its people who worked hard to reach where Buug is right now, are gathered as one with a lengthy celebration of their birth as a municipality every February of the year. They celebrate the Araw Ng Buug with much funfare and cheers. Visitors from neighboring municipalities, provinces, and cities take part in the town’s celebration.

Natural Resources of Buug, Zamboanga Sibugay, Philippines
- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.
Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.
