The August 12, 2016 airing of Tinig ng Kalikasan aimed to discuss the current initiatives of the DENR-NCR and the EMB-NCR in improving the water quality in Manila Bay. Ms. Haidee Pabalete, Chief of the Coastal and Foreshore Resource Management System Section of the DENR-NCR, pointed out during the airing that although there are a number of programs that are currently being implemented, the goal of improving the water quality of Manila Bay is a shared responsibility of all community members, regardless of the sector they belong to.


Ms. Pabalete also took the opportunity to invite the public to take part in the upcoming International Coastal Clean-up Day on September 17 in various areas in Metro Manila.
