The environmental protection, preservation, and rehabilitation program of ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya, will be celebrating its 20th year of protecting the Philippine environment. In its two (2) decades of existence, the projects implemented by the program, together with various generous donors, have improved the lives of people in communities adopted by the foundation. See how peoples’ lives have changed for the better when you visit these places. Aside from having a leisurely time, you support the local livelihood and help preserve the immediate environment of the places you’ll go to.

2. Tourism in Bantay Kalikasan Communities are booming

Adopted communities of Bantay Kalikasan are fast gaining popularity, one of which is Sorsogon. The place is already known as a whale shark haven, and a beach getaway in the Bicol region. But there is so much more to see, and activities to do! Aside from Sorsogon, Samar, Leyte, and Sarangani are places you’ll be surprised with for their tourism destinations – destinations also being supported by ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya! Read on about what to see in these lesser-known tourism gems.

4. See the resurgence of Samar and Leyte after Super Typhoon Haiyan

Samar and Leyte islands were right in the path of Super Typhoon Haiyan, the strongest storm ever recorded in terms of intensity and wind speeds. As the storm passed, ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya was one of the first responders and adopted communities to help them rise up. A hidden gem in Samar is Sohoton Cave, an otherworldly natural wonder that words and pictures will never do justice to. You just have to see it, to believe it!

5. Immerse yourself with Tribal Culture in Sarangani

The B’laan tribe is one of the largest ethnic groups in the province, and Bantay Kalikasan was instrumental in building up the Lamlifew Village Museum, an interactive site to see how the tribes people live and see the products they produce. It’s an interesting way to learn about history, as if you travel back in time and see the lifestyle of early Filipinos.

6. G-Eco Tours will let you do this, and more!

G-Eco Tours was set up by none other than Ms. Regina “Gina” Lopez, and tour programs to all the sites mentioned have been personally overseen by her, ensuring visitors experience a familial feeling as she has embedded the Kapamilya spirit in the community.
