Natural Resources of Gingoog City, Misamis Oriental, 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.

Gingoog City Council thumbs down Ifma
by MindaNews
Tuesday, 29 December 2009 11:12
MALAYBALAY CITY (MindaNews/28 December) – The City Council of Gingoog, Misamis Oriental today called on the Department of Environment and Natural Resources to cancel the Integrated Forest Plantation Management Agreement (IFMA) granted to a logging company, an environment advocacy group said in a statement.

In a special session today, eight of the 10 councilors who attended voted for the resolution asking the DENR secretary to cancel the Ifma of Southwood Timber Corporation, the Legal Rights and Natural Resources Center (LRC)-Cagayan de Oro said.

LRC said the Ifma would last for 25 years and covers 11,476 hectares of critical watershed areas in Barangay Eureka of Gingoog and Barangay Minalwang of Claveria, Misamis Oriental.

The group called the Ifma a “logging permit in the guise of massive tree plantations for corporate profit.”

An unnamed nephew of Berting Pinagawa, a Higaonon leader who was killed on Christmas Eve allegedly because of his strong opposition to the Ifma addressed the council.

He told the councilors the issue behind the Ifma is the survival of the local people and not its legality, technicality and processes. He added the council could help his slain uncle by withdrawing support to the agreement.

LRC identified the councilors who endorsed the resolution only through their family names: Bagaipo, Canosa, Bernaldez, Cabana, Chavez, Lee, Militante and Lugod.

“The victory of the people of Gingoog City is a Divine intervention,” Jimmy Ocampo, a member of the Ecological Care Group of the Social Action Center of the Diocese of Cagayan de Oro City, said.

Ocampo’s group is among those who are opposing logging operations in the mountains of Minalwang, Balatucan, and Sinakungan.

Representatives from the STC, Community Environment and Natural Resources Office and other groups were invited to the session.
