Acknowledgements.

Magandang umaga sa inyong lahat! Good morning to all of you! On behalf of the U.S. Embassy Manila’s United States Agency for International Development (USAID), I would like to congratulate the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR)-PENRO Isabela under the leadership of PENRO William Savella for spearheading the Earth Day 2015 celebration in this province.

I would also like to commend Governor Faustino Dy III, for his leadership in celebrating Earth Day in Northern Sierra Madre, a high conservation area for biodiversity and agricultural production.

I heard about the great work that the Province of Isabela is doing to help conserve the rich biodiversity in the Park, such as the active Environment Law Enforcement program, through the Isabela Environment Protection Task Force (ISEP-TF).

I am happy to see that there is a robust pro-environment constituency in the Province of Isabela, as represented by all of you, and the large number of participants who joined us in the Advocacy walk earlier this morning.
