Charting the Green Canopy with Geo-Tagging at CTU Barili Campus

In a groundbreaking initiative to embrace environmental stewardship, a student organization at CTU Barili named Subang embarked on a two-day Geo-Tagging project on February 14-15, 2024 at Cebu Technological University (CTU) – Barili Campus. The initiative, led by the Subang Co-adviser Danny E. Carabio, unfolded as a symbol of commitment to sustainable practices and community-driven conservation.

This eco-exploration focused on the rich biodiversity of the Cebu region, with a special emphasis on Philippine native trees. The Kamagong or Mabolo tree (Diospyros blancoi) and Breadfruit tree (Artocarpus altilis) were among the native treasures meticulously geo-tagged. The initiative aimed not only to map these trees but also to celebrate and preserve the rich natural heritage of the Philippines.

The geo-tagging initiative also aimed to provide an accurate and detailed inventory of the trees within the campus, fostering a deeper understanding of the local ecosystem. The collected data will be submitted to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), contributing to broader environmental conservation efforts.

Subang’s Geo-Tagging Project at CTU- Barili Campus exemplifies a commitment to environmental conservation that extends beyond the campus borders. The organization is committed to sustainable practices and community engagement, exemplified by this impactful geo-tagging project. This collaboration underscores the importance of community-driven initiatives for a greener and healthier future.
