DENR launches first cave congress in the highlands

For being abundant with a variety of trees, rich in different kinds of rock formations, blessed with clean rivers and falls that have been sincerely conserved,  it is no wonder Apayao earned its moniker as “The Last Nature Frontier of the Cordillera.”

The title alone, it calls for further protection and preservation of its nature, especially its caves in compliance to the  National Caves and Cave Resources Management and Protection Act.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources Cordillera, the provincial and municipal local governments of Apayao, Department of Tourism-Cordillera, civil society organizations and Apayao State College conducted a regional cave congress last April 20 and 21 in Luna where the Dupag Rock formation, Lussok and Manacota Caves and underground river are located.

Tourism officers, local tour guides, students, concerned government employees and cave enthusiasts from the region and neighboring province attended the congress.

Apayao Gov. Elias Bulut Jr. expressed support to the protection and preservation of the natural tourism sites in the province like the caves.

Experts discussed related laws, rules and regulations concerning caves including caves as part of the LGU’s eco-tourism destination; cave management planning and implementation; and survey, assessment, validation and classification of caves.

Spelunker Wrexton Afidchao shared his expertise on surveys in caves and safe cave exploration, including safety tips and minimizing disturbing when exploring caves.

Robert Pangod, the tourism officer of Sagada, Mountain Province where the world-famous Sumaguing and Lumiang Caves are located shared how the municipality is coping up with the tourism boom in a bid to guide the province.

He added that most tourism destinations face an enormous challenge to preserve and protect nature not for the visitors but for the next generation to enjoy.

Ely Cadang of the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office of Nueva Vizcaya said “human is the best caretaker of the environment.”
