Coastal communities in Glan fuse to combat COT infestation

GLAN, Sarangani (May 25, 2022) – Some residents of Barangay Lago burry sacks of crown of thorns (COT) collected during the simultaneous COT collection activity on May 25. The COT collection is one of the highlight activities of this year’s Sarangani Bay Festival in response to the infestation of COTs among the coastal areas in the province. Through the collaborative efforts of the Department of Natural Resources, Protected Area Management Board and the Provincial Government of Sarangani through the Sarangani Tourism and Investment Promotion Center, this year’s celebration of Sarbay Fest goes green as majority of its activities will focus on environmental protection. There will also be nightly chillouts at Coco Beach Resort in Barangay Gumasa, youth eco-camp, and bike and plant activities. Sarangani Bay Festival 2022 will run from May 25 to 28.
