DESCRIPTION OF SURIGAO DEL SUR

One brochure describes Surigao del Sur as a "kaleidoscope of superlatives…with… perfectly balanced natural resources and breathtaking scenery."

Hilly ranges (about 46% of the province’s land area) fall from Diwata Mountain to an irregular coastline with bays at Lanuza, Lianga, and Bislig. Mountains and highlands account for 16%, uplands for 17%, and lowlands for 21%. Not far offshore lies the "Philippine Deep," one of the world’s deepest ocean trenches at 10,057 m. Cave formations and waterfalls dot the landscape.

The northeast trade winds prevail almost year-round with stronger winds blowing during the season when rains are heavier, from November to January. Although still outside the typhoon belt, typhoons have historically strayed to visit once every two or three decades.

HISTORY OF SURIGAO DEL SUR

Old folks still like to recount how some Visayan fishermen, forced by strong currents in what is now known as Surigao Strait, sought refuge in one of the huts somewhere in the province. The Mamanwas thought the fishermen wanted to occupy the hut by force or agaw. This term was given the prefix "suri" by an immigrant. Combined together, the word Suri-Agaw was formed. In time, it was shortened to Surigao. Still, another version recounts that before the Spaniards came, Surigao del Sur was created as the 56th Philippine province on June 29, 1960 by virtue of R. A. No. 2786 and was formally separated from its mother province, Surigao del Norte, on September 18, 1960.

Before the Spaniards came, the original inhabitants of the province were the Mamanwas and Manobos. Later, our Malay brothers from the Visayas came to cattle with the natives. It was with the arrival of the immigrants that the province acquired its name from one of the natives. Saliagao who lived near the mouth of the river. This name Saliagao was later pronounced Surigao by the inhabitants. It is also said that long ago, some Visayan fisherman forced by the strong current of the Surigao strait, sought refuge in one of the huts somewhere in the province. The Mamanwas who thought that these fishermen wanted to occupy the hut by force said "agaw", the term which was later given a prefix "Suri" by an immigrant.

Natural Resources of Surigao del Sur, 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.
