"MATOD NA MAGAYON ANG BICOL"  The City of Legazpi has caught up to other large cities by the continuous development it has undergone led by investors and Government officials. Statistically, the largest city in the Bicol region is Legazpi City. It is an embodiment of a teacher that continues to cultivate its students of their natural wonders that is stored and hold its boundaries yet, it aspires and gives effort to be more.

In recent times, because of the rapid grow in industrialization, manufacturing and new age, the world has not avoided pollution. Legazpi City cannot avoid the issue of pollution with the city being surrounded by water, water pollution is a problem for daily life and tourism. A tourist destination often visited by locals and tourists is Embarcadero de Legazpi found along the Legazpi City Harbor, and if explored further you'll stubble upon the Bay walk where you'll see the view of the Mayon Volcano but along the shoreline are trash that ruins the majestic view and the ambiance of the area.

The petition is based on Environmental Aesthetics. It discusses the concept of the natural beauty of nature but has recently been influenced by environmental issues. The beautiful view of Puro that was washed away by the large amount of trash that washed up to the shorelines of the beach. Besides the view, it also affects the smell of the area which can often drive away people from the area. The petition is asking assistance for the restoration of the landmark for tourism and living conditions.

This petition aims to solve the water pollution situation along the area of Puro. With this petition, we plan to gather organizations and volunteers to help conduct Coastal Clean-Ups. Giving jobs to the unemployed and tasking them to clean and properly segregate and throw the washed up trash. With the help of the Government officials, a strict ordinance should be imposed and followed by the community by giving warning and penalties so they would follow. Government officials should face this issue with a positive attitude and encourage the people to help out. The Barangay should also have strict orders and follow ordinance of the law for a faster effect. 

Let us restore what can still be helped and let us maintain it. We need helping hands in making this change possible. With your help and with everyone's help we can change for the better. Let's make Bicol magayon, not only the people but the whole region. We are held responsible for our action so it is our responsibility to act. It always starts small so help us in achieving this goal. Sign this petition and share to your friends and families and protect what is ours.
