reef ranger training for brgy binubusan

A reef ranger training was conducted by the center for social concern and action (COSCA) last April 10 and 11, 2014 at brgy binubusan, lian, batangas. the objectives of the sessions include the following: 1. provide essential water safety skills to new members of the reef rangers in brgy binubusan; 2. identify marine sites in the said brgy which can be developed into ecotourism areas; 3. expand possible livelihood opportunities for the local residents.

The actual training was conducted by 3 senior reef ranger volunteers. this is a deliberate strategy employed by the COSCA to further empower the local fishers and at the same time encourage them to share their experiences with others. By the end of the 2 day training, the new reef rangers from the brgy were able to formalize their local structures and to identify other needs that have to be addressed prior to their full operation.

This activity is part of the talim bay coastal resources management project by cosca in partnership with the local government unit of lian, batangas. Its ultimate aim is to promote an appropriate resource management scheme within the municipality that anchors on the following principles: people empowerment, sustainability, systems oriented, and research based.
