A comprehensive study on Quezon mangroves forests in 2018 found out that there are twenty-two true mangrove species in Calauag and Alabat Island. The most threatened mangrove species are Gapas-gapas or Camptostemon Philippinensis and Piapi or Avicennia Marina var. Rumphiana. In this second half of their podcast on mangrove forests in Quezon, Southern Luzon State University (SLSU) talks about trivia on mangrove biodiversity in the Province. They are joined by experts from the University of the Philippines Los Baños and University of the Philippines Diliman.
This episode is produced by the Institute of Environmental Governance in SLSU; Written and directed by Brian D. Villaverde, Mary Jane S. Camarador, Khristalyn V. Fraginal and Shiela M. Manzanilla.
