Guided by our vision of creating better ways to live, we at AboitizLand believe that nature and its inhabitants must be protected to promote good quality of life for all.
In 2020, our third year of partnership with Aboitiz Foundation, the Department of Environmental and Natural Resources (DENR) and the University of the Philippines Diliman Institute of Environmental Science and Meteorology, we continued to work on the Pawikan Conservation Project, a five-year management plan to preserve sea turtle nesting sites at Seafront Residences in Barangay Calubcub II, San Juan, Batangas.Read More
Tagged by the DENR as prime nesting grounds for the endangered olive ridley sea turtles, our 43-hectare beachside development and its shoreline is home to several nests every year. As of December 2020, we have successfully released 1,246 hatchlings back into the ocean since the program started in 2018.
After three years of implementation, we have completed research and profiling of the sea turtles and their nesting sites, categorizing Barangay Calubcub II into beach zones to identify and evaluate safe areas. Together with the local government, a capacity development training was also conducted to engage locals residing in nearby towns. Pawikan Beach Patrol participants were also oriented to ensure efficient and effective implementation of the program.
For the next two years, we will be focusing on strategy evaluation and improvement as well as facilities enhancement. In partnership with various government agencies, local government units, and non-government organizations, we are looking forward to the installation of automated systems at the site which will provide us with data-driven information on rainfall, wind speed and direction, air temperature, and other physical parameters of the ocean that may affect the sea turtles.
Through this initiative, we remain committed to environment-sensitive planning when creating safe, clean, and liveable developments and homes that may be passed onto future generations.
