Mangrove Sanctuary at Taytay, perfect place to relax and unwind.
On September 15, 2013,the SGI-Philippines Youth Division members from Cagayan de Oro City conducted the mangrove tree planting activity at Taytay, El Salvador City.
They planted 2,000 propagules (mangrove trees) in a site together with the members of the Lotus Sutra Research Group (LSRG), a student group of the Capitol University, Cagayan de Oro City.
This activity was originally initiated by 16 young men of SGI-Philippines in 2003 who planted 500 mangrove trees. Since that time, they went back and forth to the site to take care of the mangrove trees. Later, the group’s activity gained more understanding and support both from public and private sectors such as the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Local Government Unit of El Salvador City, 1001 Coastguard Auxiliary Unit, and Capitol University.
