Declaration of Sapa Buhi at Brgy. Maluao as Watershed Protected Zone
Petition Background (Preamble):
To be able to restore the Sapa Buhi to its nearly original state, a serious move should be done like reforestation. But we need to be selective on the forest material we choose.
Current problem arises like Global Warming, Poverty and Disaster (Typhoons and Flood) needs to be addressed the same. According to study, bamboo is best suited to coup with these three major catastrophes, Climate Change damage is irreversible after ten years or more, by 2020, if the Green House Gases will not be lowered down to a most minuscule amount, our grandchildren will be experiencing frequent heat waves, floods, longer dry spell, super typhoons and the likes.
The proponent could hear the flying squirrel cawing from the top of a Lawaan tree before it leaps to another tall tree. Today, all these creatures are slowly vanishing and the Flying Squirrel had not cawed again for at least 20 years now, the biodiversity of Sapa Buhi was destroyed with slash and burn farming, poisoning and lack of protective measures to prevent those irreversible damages done against nature.
A call to protect Sapa Buhi and no agricultural activities shall be done in its 20 meters Riparian Zone.
