‘Eco-terrorism victimizes butanding’
MetadataShow full item record
The New York-based Royal Carribean Cruises Ltd. (RCL) launched last Monday a global partnership with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF)-Philippines to promote what they chose to support as the most environmentally sustainable tourism program in our country. The luxury cruise travel giant has chosen Donsol. Now known as the “whale shark capital of the world,” the once fifth-class municipality – the lowest classification of towns in terms of economic development – Donsol in Sorsogon has been turned into a bustling eco-tourism site.
