Importance of Mangroves

Shoreline Protection

Mangroves protect shorelines from erosion.

Mangroves protect shorelines from damaging storm and hurricane winds, waves, and floods. Mangroves also help prevent erosion by stabilizing sediments with their tangled root systems. They maintain water quality and clarity, filtering pollutants and trapping sediments originating from land.


Mangroves serve as valuable nursery areas for fish and invertebrates.

Serving as valuable nursery areas for shrimp, crustaceans, mollusks, and fishes, mangroves are a critical component of Cavite's local fishing. These habitats provide a rich source of food while also offering refuge from predation. Fish in Cavite all feed in the mangroves. Fisheries would suffer a dramatic decline without access to healthy mangrove habitats.

Renewable Resource

Mangroves are utilized in many parts of the world as a renewable resource.

In other parts of the world, people have utilized mangrove trees as a renewable resource. Harvested for durable, water-resistant wood, mangroves have been used in building houses, boats, pilings, and furniture. The wood of the black mangrove and buttonwood trees has also been utilized in the production of charcoal. Tannins and other dyes are extracted from mangrove bark. Leaves have been used in tea, medicine, livestock feed, and as a substitute for tobacco for smoking.Beekeepers have set up their hives close to mangroves in order to use the nectar in honey production.

Tuluyan nang sinakop ng China ang isang isla sa Cavite, ang birthplace ng kasarinlan ng Pilipinas. Ito ay matapos na payagang ipagamit ang dating Island Cove Resort sa Kawit na dating pag-aari ng pamilya Remulla bilang isang exclusive haven ng may 20,000 Chinese worker ng Philippine offshore gaming operator (POGO). Isang hindi tinukoy na POGO operator ang siyang mangangasiwa umano sa gagawing transformation ng 12 ektaryang lupain ng dating resort sa Kawit kung saan hindi na kailangang lumabas pa ng mga Chinese worker dahil dun na rin ang kanilang tirahan at lugar para sa rest and recreation. “The so-called POGO island could accommodate over 20,000 workers with full operations in five years. “The project is expected to have 50,000 capacity when fully operational.” sabi pa ng source. Sa ngayon, humigit-kumulang 130,000 Chinese ang nagtatrabaho sa mga POGO sa 50 lisensyadong kompanya sa buong bansa.


Island Cove sold to Chinese

The Remullas, the powerful political clan in Cavite, are reportedly richer by P7 billion following the sale of the family’s Island Cove Hotel and Leisure Park (ICHLP) in Binakayan, Kawit, Cavite.

A Babbler told us that the buyer, a consortium led by a Filipino-Chinese gaming tycoon, paid roughly P20,000 per square meter for the 36-hectare property which would be closed down on July 28, 2018 after 20 years of operation.

We’re told the buyer is planning to put up a casino-centric leisure park in the property

The brothers – Cavite Governor Jesus Crispin Remulla, Juan Victor and former broadcaster Gilbert – have refused to provide details on the purchase of the property.

A report by the Philippine News Agency said: “The management?s decision to close the establishment is in line with the purchase conditions agreed upon with the still unnamed new business owners…speculations have been spreading around for months now about the property owners? — the Remulla clan — intent to sell the resort and leisure park as the members are said to be more focused on politics and public service than managing their family business.”
