A lumber yard in the southern Philippine province of Sulu sells mangrove and bamboo poles in the town of Jolo. The illegal cutting of mangrove in Sulu continues unabatedly and environment authorities are virtually helpless in stopping the locals from destroying the marine habitat of many sea animals and fishes. Locals used the mangrove as poles for thatched houses and as firewood. (Mindanao Examiner Photo)
