Brief description of the livelihood:

he main activity attraction for PGMCEA is the mangrove walk. It is currently generating income through the P30 entrance fee being charged. The 2 POs (SPTD and TALIMA) mandated to take care of the Park are already earning from the mangrove walk because of the steady flow of Puerto Galera tourists “making a stop” at the site. Its location relevant to other highly visited sites in the municipality such as the Tamaraw Falls makes it a popular extra attraction to tourists and addition to local tour packages. An incentive system for tricycle drivers who has been key in promoting the site to tourists has also been put in place to encourage them to recommend the site more. The mangrove walk is already included in the map of tourism attractions being provided by the municipal government of Puerto Galera. A number of photographers are also doing prenuptial and event photo shoots in the walkway. Visitors from schools and government institutions doing educational tours have also been welcomed to the site in the past.
