Personnel of the Philippine National Police, Bureau of Jail and Management, Philippine Coast Guard, and volunteers from the private sector pick up trash and debris along the coast of the Las Pinas-Paranaque Wetland Park during this year’s International Coastal Clean-Up Day. The event is observed every third Saturday of September in the country pursuant to Proclamation No. 70 signed in 2003 by former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, to contribute to global marine conservation effort.
