The loss of facilities especially the building, which also serves as guardhouse for the marine sanctuary caretakers in Bagonbanua, hinders the continuous monitoring of the Marine Protected Area (MPA) against illegal fishers especially during night time. It also hinders the conduct of Information, Education and Campaign (IEC) and research activities involving marine conservation and protection, and ecosystem-based climate change adaption and mitigation.
The restoration of riparian and marine habits through education, research, and action will clearly help increase the amount of carbons sequestered by these coastal habitats. It will also help small fishers to cope and adapt with the challenges pose to them by the climate crisis. The marine sanctuary facilities proposed for Bagonbanua will surely help in conserving and protecting the marine environment which makes it more resilient to the consequences of climate crisis thus, securing the food source and livelihood of many small fishers.
