Developing Ecotourism Activities in Subic Bay

Updated: Aug 18, 2021

Subic bay is home to several mangrove forests, one of the most productive and biologically complex ecosystems.

The importance of mangroves to people and environment cannot be overemphasized. Sadly, however, mangrove forests are one of the most severely threatened and undervalued ecosystems on earth.

The International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) was celebrated last September 21, 2019 at the beach area of the Lighthouse Marina Resort which extends all the way to the mouth of the Sta. Rita River. This annual global simultaneous beach cleanup event is participated by millions of people are taking action to stop the massive destruction of our environment.

The Lighthouse Marina Resort Legacy Foundation, through its ICCPH Program, has allowed organizations and companies to implement a holistic & comprehensive program that not only educates people about the beauty and importance of our environment but also encourages a more sustainable mindset and reduce landfill dependence towards zero waste.
