The Philippines is brimming with natural resources that many of us take them for granted and ignore environmental threats.
The recent natural calamities remind us that we’re not doing enough to preserve and conserve our environment. While they are inevitable, their impact can be alleviated or worsened.
Flash floods, for instance, have worsened partly due to the rapid industrialization and clogging of waterways, according to Philippine government engineers.
It’s high time that we need to be more sensitive to the situation of our environment today.
Here are some organizations that you should follow on social media to stay informed about environmental concerns.
