Therma Visayas initiates Marine Conservation Strategy in Toledo
The whale shark, locally known as Butanding, is a migratory species that regularly passes through the coastal areas of South Luzon and the Visayan islands. These creatures frequent tropical waters and areas where plankton are abundant as these are their main source of food. Officially, the Philippines hosts the second largest known population of whale sharks in the world according to a study by Wildbook for Whale Sharks. Though the visit was short and sweet, it echoed the AboitizPower group’s promise of providing reliable and reasonable power created in the most responsible way. Therma Visayas holds in high regard the impact of its operations and takes proactive approaches to ensure the well-being and preservation of its immediate environment.
