Welcome to the site of DENR-CARAGA Region- the so-called Timber Corridor of the Southern Philippines.

     This website has been formatted and improved to give you clear and relevant information about the environment and natural resources in Caraga region including the unfolding events taking place at our field offices in Agusan del NorteAgusan del SurSurigao del NorteSurigao del Sur and theDinagat Island province.

     No-where in the Philippines can you find the beautiful and grandeur “bonsai trees” but in the rugged heights of Loreto in Dinagat Island province. This is the place where you can find the biggest saltwater crocodile in captivity ( which was included in Guinness World Records) caught by the townfolk on September 2012 in Agusan marsh in Bunawan, Agusan del Sur. This is one of the favorite homes of the Philippine Eagle (Pithecophaga jeffery) owing to the vast forest resources in their perfect canopies which traverse the hills of Agusan del Norte, Agusan del  Sur and Surigao del Sur. This is the favorite destination of  foreign and local tourists who love to enjoy and ride the so-called “Cloud 9” waves through surfing in Siargao, Surigao del Norte. Indeed, Region 13 is home to diverse species of fauna and flora.

         Did you know that that Caraga Region has 3.5 billion tons of metallic and non-metallic reserves deposits? And that Nonoc Island in Surigao del Norte has the largest nickel deposits in Asia, and Surigao del Sur,  the largest iron deposits in the whole world?

        These are some of the rich natural resources that are in store in the region. Hopefully, we can give you through this website of the information you need as we likewise expect the feedback from you so that, together, we can further improve the delivery of basic services to the people.

       Please feel free to inform us of our shortcoming even as the entire ranks and files of the DENR 13 under my supervision commit our services to the best of our abilities to the people of Caraga  and the Filipino people . May God continue to bless the Philippines.
