Zamboanga City Mayor Embraces Sustainability (and a Mangrove Tree) in Mayors’ Challenge!

Mayor Climaco of Zamboanga City gives us a tour of Santa Cruz Island, famous for its pink sand beaches and century-old mangrove tree. As a protected area frequented by tourists, human activities on the island are strictly regulated to preserve marine life (SDG 14) and life on land (SDG 15). Because urban sustainability goes beyond the city proper, conservation of the island and its resources is a top priority of Zamboanga City.

Before #UrbanOctoberPh ends, Mayor Climaco challenges Vigan Mayor Carlo Medina to join the #MayorsChallengePh.
