Management Zones of the Outer Malampaya Sound Formally Launched
As conservation of marine resources is concern, MSPLS has its General Management Plan (GMP) which indicates the allowable and prohibited activities within each zone. On 2013, the officials of Brgy. Liminangcong and Brgy. Tumbod proposed to declare the establishment of management zones on the waters in their jurisdiction to protect the marine resources from activities that may directly or indirectly harm it.
After a series of public consultations, the proposed management zones of the two (2) barangays were formally endorsed on May 11, 2015 through the joint session of their Barangay Councils. The same proposal was formally adopted by the Protected Area Management Board (PAMB)-MSPLS on August 25, 2015 through Resolution No. 12 to form part of the GMP and in consistent with the Memorandum of Agreement signed between the PAMB, Local Government Unit (LGU) of Taytay and Malampaya Foundation Incorporated (MFI).
Last January 19, 2016, the Management Zones of the Outer Sound of MSPLS was formally launched in Bgy. Liminangcong, Taytay, Palawan. The event was made possible through the initiative and collaborative efforts of CENRO Taytay, MFI, Palawan Council for Sustainable Development (PCSD), LGUs, Philippine Coast Guard (PCG), People Organizations (POs), other Non-Government Organization (NGOs), local residents who actively took in the process.
