MetadataShow full item record
Vice Mayor Abram Sualog appeals to the inter-agency group tasked to restore Boracay to find a relocation site for displaced island residents. Sualog was referring to locals whose houses were built on Boracay’s wetlands and forestlands, which are classified as not “alienable and disposable” under former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s Presidential Proclamation No. 1064 issued in 2006. The protected land areas comprise 403.04 hectares of the 1,032-hectare island resort.
