Globe sponsors Boracay clean-up dive
MetadataShow full item record
Flocks of tourists coupled with uncontrolled development have taken its toll on Boracay as coral reef destruction, water quality degradation and other environmental and social concerns continue to threaten the fragile ecosystem of the island paradise. Boracay's situation prompted Globe Telecom to step in and help the island through a comprehensive program called "Community of Practice" or CoP which is also the company's way of giving back to the community where it operates. Globe has a strong presence in Boracay especially with the recent establishment of its cable landing station.
