A total of two hundred thirty one trees inside the “Wilderness Area” located at Brgy. Damutan, Hinobaan were marked and tagged with GPS Coordinates by Task Force Ilahas during its follow up operation conducted on November 19-22, 2014.
In an inventory report submitted to Gov. Alfredo G. Marañon, Jr, Company Commander Psupt. Gabriel Gutierrez reported a total of 70.66 cubic meter (29, 959.84 bdft) fallen logs and 1, 128.77 cubic meter (478, 598.48 bdft) standing trees inside the area.
Gutierrez also reported the presence of freshly-cut fallen trees and a rice field which measures approximately one hectare inside the forest.
Timber and wildlife poaching are evident according to the report. Native horn bills and parrots which lay eggs above the tree tops were taken by wildlife poachers while cutting the stems of the trees and harvesting the newly-hatched birds, the report also said.
The team destroyed nets and foot traps installed by the poachers and is set to conduct an inventory of the remaining portion of the area.
Gov. Marañon strongly condemns the act of cutting down trees and poaching of wildlife inside the area and agreed to the team’s recommendation to deputize civilian volunteers as forest guards in the area to minimize or stop forest degradation.* /Capitol News
