PostHeaderIcon On Politics in CDO

What is our local gov’t.’s agenda for the environment in CDO? There is still hope for our mountains in CDO. The Bohol Man-Made forest which was started in 1958 is a mahogany forest stretching 2 kms. (3,000 hectares) of densely planted trees located in the border of Loboc and Bilar towns. Nature preservation is one of the main activities of the Bohol Government. (Photo taken Oct. 20, 2012.) All we need in CDO is Vision complemented with Discipline, Cooperation and the Political Will to Enforce the Law. Stop the Greed Before it kills Again! Be politically involved! ( Nixon Baban)
