El Nido, Palawan


Ecotourism


February 3, 2016

From 1999 to 2000, WWF-Philippines prepared baseline studies for the development of the General Management Plan of the El Nido-Taytay Managed Resource Protected Area and the Comprehensive Land / Water Use Plan of El Nido. Enforcement actions started in 2001 resulting in seizures, apprehensions, fines and cases filed. The multi-sectoral effort in El Nido is regarded as a model in inter-sectoral collaboration, enforcement innovations and public-private partnerships.

Today, WWF-Philippines is involved in the planning process for a Tourism Master Plan, which will be embedded into the new and updated Comprehensive Land Use Plan of this booming tourist town known for its pristine turquoise waters and towering karst limestone islets. The new Tourism Master Plan seeks to manage tourism expansion in order to mitigate its impacts on the El Nido ecosystem.
