Brief description of the livelihood:

SNPS aims to fully develop Silonay Ecopark to be an ideal model for ecosystem-based adaptation to climate change and mangrove conservation. SNPS envisions a future where the entire barangay becomes a self-sustaining and climate change resilient “ecovillage”, in which managers and stakeholders clearly benefit from conservation and biodiversity-friendly enterprises (BDFEs). In order to achieve its ambitions, SNPS strives to be a more effective and financially sustainable community through conservation, ecotourism, BDFEs, and capability building activities.
