Developing Ecotourism Activities in Subic Bay
Updated: May 11, 2020
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 educate people about the beauty and importance of our environment but also encourage a more sustainable mindset and reduce landfill dependence towards zero waste.
This year we are working with private organizations such as the Subic Sailing Club, Subic Indigenous People Assistance Group, Subic Bay Freeport Chamber of Commerce, and MAD (Make a Difference) Travel in partnership with the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority in developing ecotourism activities that will not only showcase the beauty of the environment in Subic Bay, but also create jobs to the local community most especially the indigenous people.
Watch out for the launching of these ICCPH Tours! For inquiries, you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
