A Greenpeace volunteer from the Water Watch Camp inspects a tilapia nest now exposed in the river floor of Matulid, the largest tributary of the Angat Reservoir. The white line on the cliffs in the background mark where the water level used to be. A few months ago, this whole area used to be underwater, as evidenced by the fishing net. A team of Greenpeace kayakers and mountaineers, assisted by Mt. Everest summiteer Romi Garduce, went around tributaries in Angat on April 17-18. Greenpeace is calling on Presidential candidates to prioritize water resource protection in their platforms, and to have a climate change vulnerabilities & hazards mapping during the first 100 days in office.
