Strike Revilla lauds DENR, DOT move to enforce Boracay carrying capacity

Oct 11, 2018 @ 14:40

Cavite 2nd District Representative Strike Revilla lauded the decision of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the Department of Tourism (DOT) to strictly implement a carrying capacity of 55,000 people in Boracay.

The Cavite politiko said the move will help preserve the world famous island.

“Isa sa mga pinakamahalagang pagbabago na ipatutupad ng Department of Environment and Natural Resources at Department of Tourism ay ang pagdedetermina ng carrying capacity upang ‘di ma-overload at muling maghingalo ang isla. Sa pagtaya ng gobyerno, 55,000 na tao lang ang dapat sabay-sabay na nakatungtong sa isla,” he said.

“Kaya base sa kalkulasyon, dapat limitahan sa 19,000 turista ang nasa Boracay at any given time, at kung dalawa hanggang tatlong araw naroroon ang bawat isa, hanggang sa 6,400 lang ang papayagang pumasok araw-araw. Para masiguro na hindi lalampas sa bilang na ito, ang mga hotel ay lilimitahan sa kabuuang 6,000 na kuwarto na hanggang tatlong tao lamang bawat kwarto. Maging ang mga trabahador ay lilimitahan sa 15,000 kada araw,” Revilla added.

He also said that preserving Boracay is not only the government’s responsibility.

“Tandaan lang ng lahat na hindi lamang sa gobyerno nakasalalay ang magiging tagumpay at kinabukasan ng Boracay. Higit itong nakasalalay sa bawat tutungo at tutungtong sa isla. Magtulong-tulong tayo para may forever na ang Bora-okay,” Revilla said.
