2nd Philippine Ecotourism 101 a huge success
Several responded with positive feedback and expressed their appreciation of the tools, concepts and methodologies that they learned from the training. Attendees also enjoyed networking with others who are as keen to learn about ecotourism to develop or improve products in their respective areas.
Tourism planning consultants Louie and Chen Mencias covered a variety of topics including ecotourism concepts, framework and tools for site selection, heritage mapping, basics on product development, enterprise development and destination management. They also featured case studies of Taal Volcano Protected Landscape and Batanes Protected Landscape and Seascape.
Helen A. Cutillar, the tourism officer of Sagay City in Negros Occidental, also presented and shared what they have done in Sagay Marine reserve, one of the model ecotourism sites in the Philippines. She imparted their strategies, plans, and most importantly, what they have learned over the years.
