The Talim bay community, conservation advocates  and the Center for Social Concern and Action of the DLSU – Manila pushes for  a more  environment  friendly  2013  with set  coastal resource management plans for Talim Bay  met  as planned. 

The Lian Marine Protected Areas Council  (LIMPAC) during its regular  planning and evaluation activity held last February 8, 2013  in  Barangay Lumaniag, Lian, Batangas  reviewed  its conservation initiatives in 2012.  The body  discussed the project updates, among others is the implementation of  mangrove  reforestation and  efforts  to  widen the  extent  of   fishing area demarcated as  a no-fishing zone, which   coastal ecosystem are strictly protected and which  area requires that  fishing activities within Talim Bay need to be  regulated.  The LIMPAC  takes the lead in overseeing  and  in setting  policy directions for the of Coastal Resource Management (CRM) project in Talim bay.

 Highlighting  the  activity was the  discussion  and  agreement reached to  sign a Memorandum of Agreement  (MOA) with the local officials  of  Barangay Binubusan, another CRM project area in the municipality of  Lian  and   the  Lian  Fisher Folk  Association for mangrove sea grass  protection.  

The Environment  and Natural Resources  Office  key staffer regularly inspects the  mangrove  in keeping   with the  project’s  goal to help the  fishing community conserve, protect and sustainably utilize Talim bay’s marine resources through the institutionalization of management options, among others.

The Center for Social Concern and Action of  the  De La Salle University – Manila undertakes  regular  deployment  of  students in the  project area in Lian, Batangas  as part of the  institution’s formation efforts.  Visiting the CRM area in Talim bay deepens community involvement  of DLSU students,  providing them opportunities to contribute to environmental conservation and protection initiatives, in line with the framework of faith in action.
