LAS PIÑAS-PARAÑAQUE WETLAND PARK
How to Get There
The Las Pinas-Paranaque Wetland Park (formerly known as LPPCHEA) is home to many mangrove tree species. And where there are mangroves, usually there abounds a flourishing coastal and marine life as these salt-tolerant trees serve as important feeding grounds for many fish species, shrimps, and other wild animals such as birds, reptiles, and amphibians.
On April 22, 2007, it was proclaimed as critical habitat by the Philippine government under Presidential proclamation no. 1412. LPPWP serves as a sanctuary for both local and migratory birds. Dubbed as the "last coastal frontier" of the region, it is known for having the most diverse collection of mangrove species on this side of Manila Bay. It is a wetland serving as a safeguard that helps minimize the damages brought by natural disasters such as strong sea surges from typhoons.
