SUPPORT THE CONTINUED REHABILITATION OF MT. APO!

Reopening the trails leading to Mt. APO after a year it was burnt should be stopped. It is contrary to the ongoing rehabilitation of the mountain which suffered the fate of destruction when hundreds of hectares was burned last year due to the fault of irresponsible climbers permitted to climb the mountain. More years has to be spent to allow the mountain to heal and its biodiversity restored to its once pristine condition.
Increasing the climbing fee to P2,500.00 per climber and limiting the numbers of climbers is not a guarantee that the mountain will not suffer the same unfortunate incident. It is more beneficial to the LGUs who will reap more money to fill their coffers at the expense of the mountain.
The livelihood of the Indigenous People in the area is not the most significant issue. Government agencies tasked to administer them can help alleviate their living condition. The environment and the mountain are our life support. We cannot buy air to breath when the last tree is cut or burned to the ground. Let us protect them in whatever means we can! Stop deforestation.
NO TO THE REOPENING OF MT. APO UNLESS AN EDUCATED ASSESSMENT AND EVALUATION BY A COMPETENT BODY SUPPORT IT.
