Further, DENR Regional Officials should regularly visit far flung or remotest DENR Field Offices and project sites (e.g. NGP) and be visible to the communities and let them feel our presence that there is an agency truly concerned with our environment. After RED Barcelo delivered his marching order, he invited the participants for a New Year ceremonial toast.

Sampulna mentioned that the DENR Secretary wanted to create an Enforcement Bureau to give solution to the present problematic situation wherein some of our DENR Personnel specifically patrollers, protection officers, and rangers are being killed for enforcing DENR laws in his lecture on Environment and Natural Resources Enforcement.
