The country's ulamas have been urged to take on a new task: preach about the environment.

The local branch of the Muslim Associations for Climate Change Action has asked the country's Muslim clerics to include sermons on the environment during the Friday worship seeing as the country's five million Muslims in Mindanao are, aside from armed conflicts, threatened by global warming.
