For 17 years, the city of Puerto Princesa organises the “Love Affair With Nature”. During this event, that celebrates both love and nature, the inhabitants of Puerto Princesa City are invited to plant trees along the coast in a festive mood. Love Affair With Nature is also 100 couples married for free by the Mayor of Puerto Princesa, the presentation of the candidates for Miss Puerto Princesa and Binibinig Sexy 2019, dances and concerts.
The major issue of this day is rebuilding, on the coastline of the island, a natural barrier to avoid the erosion of the coast and also protect a large animal biodiversity. Moreover, the vegetation of the coastline (such as the mangrove) participates into to the storage of the CO2 (it could hold back 10 times more carbon than the Amazonian forest).
Thanks to our partner, the CityENRO, for inviting us to participate to this wonderful initiative.
