The province of Palawan is located in the Mimaropa region and is the largest in the country, abundant with wildlife sanctuaries, marine reserves and world heritage sites. It’s also one of the most biodiverse islands in the Philippines, with a beautiful seascapes deserving of conservation.
With this volunteer gap project in the Philippines we hope to help conserve and reverse the trend of deteriorating mangrove plantations. Realistically, this can only really be achieved by education younger generations and, at the same time, planting new mangroves.
On this project you’ll be helping to clean the beaches and teach youngsters about the benefits of conservation. This programme is perfect for you if you have a good level of physical fitness, enthusiasm and keen to make environmental change.
After breakfast on Monday you’ll spend the morning helping to plant Mangroves before heading back to the Centre for lunch. You’ll return to the Mangrove plantation in the afternoon then head back for dinner. On Tuesday the day follows a similar pattern except this time you’ll be on the beach helping with a coastal cleaning programme. On Wednesday it’s back to the Mangrove plantation. Thursday is a day of giving environmental talks to local children. Friday will be spent back at the Mangrove plantation.
