Welcome to the official website of DENR Central Luzon!

The realities of 21st century environmental governance require that fresh and up-to-date information about our environment and natural resources are readily available to the scrutinizing public, and that all avenues for dissemination are maximized to bring our services at the doorstep of our constituents.

At this time and age of space travel and information technology, the website is key in promoting transparency, accountability and meaningful partnership in DENR activities in Central Luzon.

We hope you find our website informative and user-friendly. A quick tour on the menu bar will guide you on the services we offer. Downloadable forms from the DENR technical services are available, and so are the geo-hazard maps to help local governments and the ordinary Filipino deal with natural hazards in the face of the growing threats of global warming and climate change.

Relevant statistics and contact information are also found on our website, including links to other agencies and organizations. Spectacular landmarks and geological features on Central Luzon’s environment and natural resources, including unique flora and fauna, can also be found on the rotating carousel with the hope that this would stimulate public interest in their protection and conservation.

Latest news about our policy directions and priority programs and activities are posted regularly to keep everyone on the loop about how the DENR is measuring up to the challenge of protecting and conserving our resources, and how other societal sectors could share in the environmental responsibility and help.

DENR Region III is committed to do everything within its power to champion the cause of sustainable development and to protect the people’s right to a balanced ecosystem for the enjoyment of present and future generation of Filipinos.

DENR intensifies protection of marine resources in Zambales

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) here recently intensified its campaign on the protection and conservation of marine resources in the more than 7,000-ha Masinloc-Oyon Bay Protected Landscape and Seascape (MOBPLS) in Masinloc town in Zambales through the launching of a flagship species mascot named “Maggie”, under the Costal and Marine Ecosystem Management Program (CMEMP), environment authorities said.

Arthur Salazar, deputy director for Technical Services of DENR Central Luzon said the mascot Maggie symbolizes the blue spotted rabbit fish scientific Siganus corallinus, which is now threatened in the MOBPLS.

“Maggie was named after the pristine Magalawa Island in Zambales. The fishing for this flagship species is now being regulated by the local government unit because of its declining population,” he explained.

He said the blue spotted rabbit fish was chosen by local communities as flagship species because of its economic and ecological importance, being a major food source and livelihood for the fisher folk in the area.
