Manila bay is considered to be a natural harbor which is also known as the port of Manila as it makes the commerce and trade between the Philippines and another country possible.

 

Manila Bay is important to everyone and most especially to the Filipinos because of its historical, cultural, and economic value. But as time passes by, the image of the Manila  Bay has been greatly affected and damaged because of the wrongdoings of the Filipinos.

 

Thus, this petition aims to continually help change the negative habits of some od the Filipinos to be able to preserve Manila Bay.

 

It may be known as a historical place because of the trading that once happened there and the events from the history that took place in Manila Bay called “The Battle of Manila Bay” which was the war between Spanish and Americans during 1898. But, this did not completely cause the pollution. Agriculture as we all know is good for the country but sometimes it is not, when it comes to water pollution, organic decayed plants, dead animals, live stock manure, soil runoff; and non – organic pesticides and fertilizers. Domestic sewage is also one of the causes since it contains pathogens that threaten the other living organisms. Other resources like oil, mine or chemical spills and illegal dumping in or near water are causes of the destruction of the Philippines’ beloved historical place. If one can do anything for the sake of their own benefits, why not do the same with our country?

 

There are a lot of reasons why we should save the Manila Bay:

  • ·         To prevent further damage to our natural ecosystem
  • ·         To improve the aquatic system of the Manila Bay and connecting bodies of water
  • ·         To decrease the risk of diseases in the surrounding area
  • ·         In order for the next generation to appreciate the Manila Bay’s Beauty
  • ·         In order to pay respect to one of our Historical Place

In a matter of few years we might never see the Manila Bay ever again considering that sooner or later all we’ll ever see is trash. So sign our petition and help save this historical monument.
