Snorkels, Surfboard, Flip- Flops, Paddles… Tired of swimming through flood?
Flooding do not respect any boundaries. It will devour properties, from residential houses to business establishments, and will flow from one city to the next.
“Philippines, hailed as the most storm-exposed country in the world, can turn the slightest of rains into a car-sinking spectacle.”
You can blame it on the faulty drainage systems that the government fails miserably to repair or on the man-made troubles like global warming.
But the truth of the matter is, flooding is a part of the Philippine motoring during rainy season, and it does not look like it is going to be different anytime soon.

“What is the most significant change you’ve seen in the world in the last ten years?” was the question for Miss Philippines, Maxine Medina during the 65th Miss Universe pageant.
Medina’s answer sparked quite a substorm over social media, resulting to some Filipino netizens chiming in to channel their inner beauty queen to answer the question, citing that Medina’s answer should have been about the millennials, gender equality or climate change.
If I were to answer the same question, I would probably want to tap on the matter of climate change as one of the most significant changes that I have seen in the last ten years.
“The exploitation of the world’s natural resources like fossil burning fuel and greenhouse gases are only few of the leading causes of environmental degradation.”
With this, the warming of the planet at an alarming rate will put the health and the livelihoods of the many at risk.

A TOPIC IN MY PRESENTATION TODAY:
Parrotfish, also known as Mol-Mol!
The flamboyant, algae-eating, sand-pooping, Parrotfish is the most important fish in the Bohol Sea or Panglao coral reefs. ... Parrotfish eat algae and dead coral. They spend up to 90% of their day nibbling. In other words, they clean the reef and poop out coral sand. This sand is then ‘transported’ by tidal and wave movement to the shorelines to build beaches or make up for lost sand.
Don’t catch and don’t buy this fish. It is much more important to have it clean up coral reefs and produce coral sand then shoveling it into your stomach! Reefs are already lacking large numbers of these important fishes.
A large species of parrot fish in Hawaii produces up to 800 pounds of coral sand a year and one species in Australia up to one ton of sand a year.
But the most important ‘duty’ of parrot fishes isn’t to produce sand but to clean coral reefs from algae. Algae poses the greatest threat to corals beside global warming. If parrot fishes are reduced in numbers, corals may die because the fish which takes care of eating off algae landed on people’s plates.
The Parrot fish belongs to the family of Scaridae. Genus: Genera
The Bolbometopon and the Bumphead Parrot Fish are the ones pooping sand 🙂. These two should be first on the protection list.
