The Department of Environment and Natural Resources, along with two large companies, will revive two of the nine wetlands in Aklan's Boracay Island. Secretary Roy Cimatu said the Aboitiz group and the Lopez-owned Energy Development Corp. are joining government efforts to rehabilitate the pollution-challenged Boracay Island by adopting two of its nine wetlands. Under the partnership, the two companies would be responsible for the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of eco-engineered structures and facilities to enhance the ecotourism values of the wetlands.
