7 Reasons Why Danjugan Island is a Model of Nature Conservation

Tour responsibly.

Another great thing about Danjugan Island is it is managed by a non-government and non-profit organization. Therefore it eradicates senseless business decisions and politicking when it comes to overseeing the conservation operations in the island. In 1994, through a worldwide fundraising, the Philippine Reef and Rainforest Conservation Foundation, Inc. (PRRCFI), bought the island with a vision to preserve its amazing wildlife state and provide a lasting habitat to the many species that exist in and around Danjugan Island.

To date, PRRCFI “have provided technical support to the local government unit of Cauayan in establishing the surrounding waters in Danjugan Island as special marine protected areas where fishing activities are regulated.”

When you visit the island, Dave Albao, the Executive Director of PRRCFI, will immediately brief you with all necessary information about the organization’s conservation efforts in the island.

The island holds a “Marine and Wildlife Camps Program”
