Ocean Defender: Go, Grow Grove!

December 5, 2019— CCEF hosts a symposium on “Ocean Defender: Go, Grow Grove” at the University of the Visayas – Cebu-Main Campus. This symposium was held to raise awareness and encourage university students in participating in sustainable practices, as well as becoming involved with CCEF activities for Project SMILE.

The symposium started with an opening message from the University of the Visayas Maritime College Dean, Capt. Siegfredo G. Lanticse and a welcoming message from Ms. Bernadetta Lasula, CCEF Admin and Finance Officer. This was then followed by the rationale of the symposium by Dr. Jezreel Tanilon, UV Community Relations Officer, and the presentation of the Project SMILE by Mr. Lloyd Yosoya, CCEF Project Coordinator.

A short talk on the importance of mangroves and why we should protect them was also presented by Mr. Jonathan Apurado, CCEF Mangrove Specialist. The talk also showcased the basics of mangrove planting and the different kinds of species found in Barangay Biasong, Talisay which is the main project site of Project SMILE.
