Twenty fishers and local residents from Brgys. Lumaniag, Binubusan and Luyahan attended the reef ranger snorkeling guide training conducted by the team led by Mr. Louie Mencias and Mr. Reymundo Pomarca last December 10 to 15, 2013. The 6 day session aims to provide the participants with knowledge and skills on the following: Introduction to the Philippine coral reefs and the marine environment, community based eco-tourism; coastal resource management, seven environmental principles; outdoor guiding principles and techniques, basic and advanced technique in snorkeling, and first aid and water safety.
This is sequel to the previously conducted reef ranger training phase 1. For this session, a new set of participants were to be trained as reef ranger guides in anticipation of the increase in the number of local tourists coming to view the protected reef of Talim Bay.
The ultimate objective of this training is to provide the local resource users supplemental source of income while protecting their own ecosystems.
