BORACAY ISLAND, Malay, Aklan, Jan. 19 — Foreign and local tourists who come here are being asked to help protect this resort island so that the next generation would still be able to appreciate the beauty of nature.

Malay, Aklan mayor John Yap said that he hopes tourists would help in conserving the environment of this resort island apart from the P100 environmental fee that are being charged on each tourist coming to and from this resort island.

Yap said that the local government of Malay is doing its part especially with the help of the Petron-Boracay Beach Management Program (BBMP), a multi-sectoral group that caters to the protection of this resort island.

"If everyone would help in the conservation of Boracay, the younger generation would still continue to be awed by nature's gift," he said.

The Petron Foundation had decided to embark on an environmental project in this resort island believing that it also has a social responsibility on keeping the environment of this premier tourism destination. (PNA) DCT/LOR/AJP/JNA/vlo
