Vivant Energy Corporation has committed its support to officials and volunteers who are protecting sea turtles in Barangay Simpocan, Puerto Princesa City in Palawan.
The energy firm has donated solar-powered flashlights, T-shirt uniforms and aquabags to volunteers of the sanctuary.
“We recognize the value of the sea turtle conservation project in Simpocan in maintaining Palawan’s position as the country’s last frontier,” Vivant Energy Chief Operating Officer Emil Andre Garcia was quoted in a report.
“Vivant takes its responsibility towards the environment seriously and our values are shared by our subsidiaries and partners,” he added.
Simpocan is an important site for the conservation of sea turtles. The City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) in Puerto Princesa manages the project with the help of the Simpocan community.
