The Green Lion
The province of Palawan is located in the Mimaropa region and is the largest province in the country, abundant with wildlife sanctuaries, marine reserves and world heritage sites. Being the location of Palawan Island, one of the most biodiverse islands in the Philippines, the area has one of the most beautiful seascapes in the world receiving much local interest for conservation. Our hope through this project is to conserve mangrove plantations and reverse the trend of deteriorating mangrove sites, which has seen a rapid decrease during recent years. This can realistically only be achieved through the education of younger generations, combined with the continual physical work of planting new mangroves. That’s why we’ll be asking you to serve as a coastal barrier, slowing storm surge and reducing beach erosion, cleaning the beaches, and encouraging environmental conservation through training sessions with children. This programme is perfect for you if you have a good level of physical fitness and enthusiasm and a passion for making a change!
About the Accommodation This center houses all participants in their programs around Palawan. It is built with many natural elements and have a tropical beach look to them! You’ll be sleeping on bunk beds and we have limited laundry facilities, so expect to wash your clothes by hand, unless you’d like to use the laundry service here for a small fee. Food Arrangements The food will consist mainly of local Philippine cuisine (lots of vegetables, meat, egg and rice) and will be served on site at this accommodation.
Palawan is a special island dotted with fishing villages and surrounded by beautiful blue sea. The scenes contrasts perfectly with the emerald green jungled mountains which form its landscape. Our accommodation is located in Tigman Village in Aborlan District, a small and laid back area just outside of Puerto Princesa City.
