Helping clean our environment, Hamilo Coast, SM Land's premier residential leisure destination development, organized its 4th annual coastal clean-up in Nasugbu, Batangas. Volunteers from the private sector and the local community gathered to have this project as part of Hamilo Coast's continuing partnership with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF)Philippines.
“The coastal clean-up proves our commitment to environmental preservation and sustainable development,” remarks Rona Torres-Tan, Senior Vice-President, Project Head, Costa Del Hamilo Inc. “Preserving the coast’s natural beauty is foremost among our priorities. Since we started the coastal regeneration program in 2008, we have seen considerable improvement in Hamilo’s marine life.
We now have soft corals and we have seen an increase in the number and variety of fish including jacks, snappers and groupers. We are especially happy to see that puffer fish have once again made their homes in our waters and sea turtles have also come to lay their eggs along our coastline, which is a good indication of the health and cleanliness of Hamilo’s marine environment.”
Encompassing 37.5 hectares of land, thirteen coves, and kilometers of the finest coastlines in Nasugbu, Hamilo Coast is envisioned to provide a network of leisure communities with a variety of lifestyle experiences. The development is part of the Verde Island Passage of the Coral Triangle, known as “the center of the center of marine biodiversity in the world”. To ensure Hamilo Coast’s genuine sustainability, it has partnered with WWF Philippines to develop projects in the areas of coastal resource management, solid waste management, and renewable energy.
“The preservation of Hamilo Coast is an integral part of our company’s investment in the future so Filipinos can continue to enjoy the beauty of Hamilo for generations to come,” concludes Tan.
With the continuous effort to help save our environment, the coastal clean-up at Hamilo Coast and nearby areas will ease our burden so we should all religiously participate. Thanks to SM Land's Hamilo Coast and WWF for showing our commitment to save Mother Nature. Now, we have more reasons to promote country worldwide with another premier site for Pinoy pride at Hamilo Coast.
