Bakit hindi? Bataan politiko eyes Aetas as forest rangers
A Bataan politiko is pushing for the designation of the indigenous Aetas as forest rangers of the province.
Provincial Board Member Danilo Salonga, who is also the Indigeneous People’s Mandatory Representative (IPMR) in Bataan, said the Aetas knowledge of the forests and mountains will make them the perfect guardians of nature.
Salonga is proposing to designate six to 12 rangers that will come from the 18 indigenous peoples’ communities in Bataan.
He also said the communities themselves should endorse the rangers that will be assigned for the roles to ensure their track record.
