Indigenous communities told to help preserve tourist spots
by PIO release

Tourism Usec. Marco Bautista rallied indigenous peoples of the Cordillera to spearhead efforts to preserve and protect the region’s tourist destinations.

Bautista, who was the keynote speaker during the culmination program of the Indigenous Peoples’ Month celebration in Baguio City, said tourism provides the opportunity for people to be involved in the diversification of income through various activities that allow them to have stable sources of livelihood without compromising the environment.

“We laud the IPs for their unique ways of preserving and protecting the environment that serves as the main source of everything we have. We must be resilient in advancing the tourism industry in our region without inflicting damage to our environment,” Bautista said.

He said as IPs know what is the best for the existing tourist spots in their ancestral domain, they should work on how to guarantee the least possible damage tourism may cause the environment.

Bautista said concerned government agencies, local government units, and stakeholders must start working on a sustainable formula to guarantee the preservation and protection of the region’s environment, while continuously enticing foreign and domestic visitors to frequent the various tourist destinations.

He said there should always be a sustainable co-existence between the IPs and tourist destinations, so that IPs will be empowered to remain as stewards of the tourist spots that have been and will continue to be the main source of their livelihood.

He urged present generations of IPs to pass on to the upcoming generations the best practices in preserving and protecting the environment in their ancestral domain to prevent improvements that will compromise tourist destinations and deter visitors.

Bautista assured IPs that the tourism department will always be supportive of their initiatives because the agency considers the IPs as its partner in preventing damage to the sites.
