Area Development of Brgy. Buhatan through Eco-tourism


A river once filled with garbage and neglected by the community became one of the most successful ecotourism sites in Sorsogon City. Bantay Kalikasan, in tandem with the local government and funder Energy Development Corporation, built tourism infrastructures, trained the communities and exposed them with different media platforms. It resulted to a significant paradigm shift in the consciousness of the people of Buhatan, thus Buhatan River Eco-Adventure Service Cooperative was born. The Buhatan River Eco-Adventure is also regarded as the most successful community-based tourism in Sorsogon City. The people’s organization was actually invited by the Department of the Environment and Natural Resources to share their best practices for others to learn from and possibly replicate. The Buhatan River Eco-Adventure achievement confirms Bantay Kalikasan’s vision to create communities who live harmoniously with the environment.
