The month of June was declared by then President Corazon C. Aquino as the Philippine Environmental Month by virtue of Presidential Proclamation no. 237 signed in April 1988. Consistent with the said proclamation, the Mines and Geosciences Bureau Regional Office No. V (MGB R.O.-V) shall launch series of activities in celebration of the environment Month with the theme: “Beat Air Pollution” which emphasizes as one of the causes that threatens biodiversity and human survival as the presence of harmful chemicals in the air we breathe could hamper one’s good health.
