This famed island resort must not be managed by the local government alone, according to Sen. Cynthia Villar. The environmental degradation in Boracay must “not happen again,” the senator stressed. Boracay is currently halfway into its six-month closure and rehabilitation, which is led by an inter-agency tasked force headed by the Environment department. President Rodrigo Duterte is his third State of the Nation Address on July 23 said he ordered to close off the island to tourists because he “could not allow [its] decay to continue.”
