seal partnership

A partnership was signed recently by ABS-CBN Foundation and 2GO Travel to open more tourism opportunities for the Sibuyan Island ecotourism destination, a press release from the foundation said.

Sibuyan Island, east of Romblon, is one of the densest and most biodiversed rainforests in the world, and is home to over a hundred unlisted endemic species of birds, mammals, reptiles and plants, the press release also said.

Gina Lopez, managing director of ABS-CBN Foundation, said the way for the Philippines to go forward is to care for the environment, and working together can make a difference.

The Odiongan, Romblon route of 2GO Travel, that will start on March 10, makes Sibuyan Island more accessible to local and international tourists. For travelers who visit Boracay through Caticlan, 2GO Travel, born out of established brands like Negros Navigation, Superferry, Cebu Ferries and Supercat, has a combined history of more than 148 years in the travel industry, the press release also said.

The foundation said it hopes the new route will open a lot of opportunities, not just for Romblon province but for everyone. For more details about the partnership, those interested may contact Marissa Sanchez at 0917-4788060, the press release added.*
