Today is World Tourism Day 2020! Let us celebrate ‘Tourism and Rural Development’. Tourism may be one of our most powerful tools to help communities recover from the devastating economic and social impacts of the Covid19 pandemic.

The Municipality of Cagayancillo share in the tourism revenues in Tubbataha to support rural development. The fund is used to build roads, support seaweed farming, women’s livelihood groups, and agriculture.

The Tubbataha Management Office (TMO) joins the United Nations call to act #Fornature! Celebrate #WTD!
