“Ang ating hindi pangangalaga sa kabundukan, sa kalikasan ay nararanasan na natin ngayon, kamakailan may mga basurang bumaha imbis na tubig ang rumagasa sa kapatagan. Wala ng humahawak at nagpprotekta sa kabundukan kaya kailangan mas paigtingin natin ang pagprotekta sa mga natitira pa nating likas-yaman. Tayo bilang mga mamamayan na malapit sa kapaligiran at nakikinabang sa kalikasan ay tayo mismo ang nararapat maging mas maalam at mas nakatutok sa pagprotekta ng kalikasan laban sa mga balak sumira dito,” stated by ABC President Kapitan Reden.###
