Environment Secretary Roy A. Cimatu (left) points to the bamboo debris that were washed ashore to the Manila Bay near the US Embassy in Roxas Blvd in Manila. Cimatu said, the bamboo poles, which had shells attached to them, may have come from fishpens in nearby places and reached Manila Bay due to the monsoon. With Cimatu is DENR Undersecretary for Solid Waste Management and Local Government Units Concerns Benny D. Antiporda (2nd from left). Cimatu inspected the area on July 13 to check the status of the bay’s clean up.
