Danjugan Island Nature Tourism Program (DINTP)
Brgy. Bulata, Sipalay has been the focus of PRRCFI in terms of community development and engagement but it’s efforts extend throughout the Southern Negros area. Since the establishment of Danjugan Island’s Nature Tourism Program (DINTP), staff members handling island operations are all from the local community. To date, DINTP employs at least 25 local staff members, supporting a network of at least 25 families from Brgy. Bulata and other nearby villages. 100% of the income from the DINTP goes back to conservation programs.
Marine and Wildlife Camps
Danjugan Island is nature’s perfect classroom. The Marine and Wildlife camps have been going on for 28 years now. Watch this video to see how fun and meaningful our Camps are.
Sea Waste Education to Eradicate Plastic
The Sea Waste Education to Eradicate Plastic (SWEEP) is a 24-month project for coastal communities in southern Negros to work together in reducing their plastic waste for cleaner seas and healthier fisheries. SWEEP will target specifically the Southern Negros Island Marine Key Biodiversity Area, with its network of marine protected areas (MPA) facing the Sulu Sea. The project will work directly with three cities (Sipalay City, Bayawan City, and Bacolod City) and five municipalities (Cauayan, Hinoba-an, Basay, Santa Catalina, and Siaton).
Wala Usik : Tiangge + Kapehan
Negros Island’s first zero-waste store is open in Bacolod City and hopes to reduce residual waste at the source by offering the opportunity to purchase fast-moving consumer goods in ‘tingi-tingi’ (small increments) without all that nasty single-use plastic packaging.
