Mindanao's 'hidden gem' sparkles
By VINCE G. LOPEZ
March 20, 2011, 1:22am


Dugong, Pawikan, Tarsier. The Philippine Eagle.

These have become the faces of regional tourism. Over the years, these endemic species have been instrumental in attracting foreign tourists to the country.

Tarsiers draw tourists to Cebu, the Philippine eagle does the same thing for Davao.

But why travel to different provinces when you can see most of them in one single province?

Davao Oriental, Mindanao’s “hidden gem,” is home to most of these wonderful creatures of the wild. It also prides itself with more than a handful of unexplored natural wonders, reason for which it is now busy preparing itself to sparkle as the newest ecotourism center of the Philippines.

A slideshow of the natural wonders within Davao Oriental can get any tourist sold to the idea of going on an adventure to this side of the country. From unspoiled rocky formations, scenic lakes as well as blissful isolated white sands, tourists will definitely want to schedule a trip into the laid back province of Davao Oriental.

But the province is not in a hurry to be on the pedestal of Philippine tourism. As of the moment, the province knows its tourism potential and wants everything to be in place before dozens of tourists come barging into their beloved hometown.

“Our province is located in the Pacific Rim coast line and it’s one of the reasons why Davao Oriental is so blessed with natural wonders. Each of our municipalities have their own unique features and they’re not the usual kind of attractions. All of our tourist attractions are unspoiled and have a strong potential for tourism. But we don’t want to promote our province piece by piece, we want to be ready when we present our province to the public,” expressed Corazon T. Nuñez-Malanyaon, Davao Oriental Governor.

The governor also added that up to now, they get tourists simply by word of mouth from previous visitors who say good words about their experiences at Davao Oriental.

"It's not unusual for us to have foreign visitors. We even have tourists coming from as far as Germany. Most of these tourists come to our province because they have heard of Davao Oriental from websites and blogs. They come in and enjoy the sites of the province as well as the unique culture,” added Governor Nuñez-Malanyaon.

The governor further explained that “the province is also known for its biodiversity and the marine conservation here in Mati which is Davao Oriental’s capital. We have dugong, whales, dolphins, pawikan, and butanding. We’ve got it all and we also have the king of eagles in its natural habitat as well as the tarsier.”

Currently, the local government of Davao Oriental is actively enumerating their tourist sites. In the process, they are also trying to figure out the kind of market their province can capitalize on.

“We consider the province as the new ecotourism frontier. Davao Oriental has adventure, culture, nature and wildlife. With the development of the Tourism office which will handle the development and everything else involved in tourism, we are definitely on our way to reaching our real potential for tourism,” explained Cynthia Rodriguez, Davao Oriental’s Provincial Tourism Officer.

Recently, the province has been receiving its fair share of adventurous tourists and international divers.

"Davao Oriental has a diverse marine biodiversity. Adventurous tourists will have their hands full doing mountain climbing, mountain trails, skim boarding as well as surfing. Davao Oriental is really well versed when it comes to its number of tourist attractions. But we don’t want to promote excessively, we don’t want tourists coming in and be disappointed with what they see. It’s much better if tourists come in and be surprised with what Davao Oriental can offer them,” added Rodriguez.

At this time, Davao Oriental has already named three municipalities ready to receive tourists. These are Governor Generoso, San Isidro, and Mati. Aside from adventure and trekking, it’s what’s underneath the deep blue ocean that makes the said sites viable for tourists.

"Davao Oriental’s gold is in the water not on the mining sites. The province truly has a lot of wonders underneath it. Tourists just need to explore and they would be in for a big surprise with the kind of marine biodiversity they can find here. It’s better than Palau and Samal Islands, the water is really nice and the kind of marine species is just really something else,” relayed Ren Yuson, one of the professional divers participating in Davao Oriental’s plan for enumerating the dive sites in the province.

Davao is keeping a low profile for now. First, they want to put everything in place so that they could sustain tourism without spoiling its natural wonders.

"We want to iron out everything first which includes accreditations as well as the locals who will become the front-liners of our tourism. We don’t want to rush into anything and ruin what we have. Our plan is for each of our municipality’s tourist attractions to complement each other. We want to have minimum developments as possible where tourists can see Davao Oriental as natural as possible,” concludes Gov. Nuñez-Malanyaon.

INDIGENT SENIOR CITIZENS TO BENEFIT FROM SOCIAL PENSION PROGRAM
3/24/2011
by CIO - Mati

City of Mati (March 24, 2011)-- The social pension program is about to benefit the 349 indigent senior citizens in the City of Mati, from different barangays of Mati who are thoroughly and meticulously identified by the National Household Targetting System (NHTS) of DSWD.

This is after the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), in coordination with the City Social Welfare and Development (CSWD-Mati), conducted an orientation to the indigent senior citizens in Mati on the government’s Social Pension Program under the 4P’s Program.

The Social Pension Program primarily aims to improve the living condition of the country’s indigent senior citizens, to augment their capacity to meet their daily subsistence and medical requirements, to reduce incidence of hunger among such age brackets, and to protect them from neglect, abuse, and deprivation.

DSWD allocated 2.9 million pesos intended for the said program in the City of Mati of which priority beneficiaries for the said program are those 77 years old and above, as the government is still looking for additional funds to eventually include all indigent senior citizens in the country.

The P500 monthly stipend aims to augment the daily subsistence and other medical needs of indigent senior citizens in line with P-Noy’s social contract with the Filipino people and in support of the Expanded Senior Citizen’s Act of 2010 (Republic Act 9994).

The DSWD affirmed that it is their goal to start paying the beneficiaries within this quarter and in which they will designate special disbursing officers for the releasing of the P500 monthly stipend (from January 2011) of the beneficiaries until their cash cards (ATM cards) are processed.

Based on the result of the National Household Targeting System (NHTS), at least 349 senior citizens in the City of Mati are qualified to receive monthly pension of P500 from the social pension program of DSWD.

Moreover, it was learned that the program has an initial funding of P870 million, which is set to benefit more than 146,000 eligible indigent senior citizens nationwide. The program is set for review by Congress every other year to see on how to better improve it.

Under the guidelines on the implementation the social pension program, indigent senior citizens are those who are frail, sickly or disable, without pension or permanent source of income or regular support from relatives to meet basic needs. The social pension is mandatory under Republic Act No. 9994, also known as the “Expanded Law on Senior Citizen,” where the indigent senior citizens shall be entitled to a monthly stipend of P500 or P 1,500 per quarter.

LGU – MATI CONDUCTS FORUM TO PROTECT “DUYONG/DUGONG” & OTHER MARINE MAMMALS
3/9/2011
by CIO - Mati

City of Mati (March 9, 2011) -- In an effort to protect and preserve the marine mammals (Dugong-Sea Cow, Dolphins), a joint forces of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR), Department of Agriculture, PENRO, DENR, DOSCST and the City Government of Mati convened with the stakeholders at the Dahican Beach, Brgy. Dahican, Mati, on March 9, 2011, to establish a task force and discuss long term solutions for alternative livelihood as training programs, develop tourism potentials and to protect and preserve the different marine mammals that are present in the Dahican sea.

The workshop participants and trainers agreed to establish an e-group to continue the exchange of ideas among members and enable to work more effectively over a larger scale through time. The core group of these stranding residents agreed to fully cooperate to make this plan become a real functional one.

The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) is developing the Marine Mammal Stranding Network for the Dahican Bay, City of Mati to prevent accidental killing of “duyong/dugong” Sea Cow.

The Philippine Marine Mammal Stranding Database is a product of an on-going project entitled `Development of the Philippine Marine Mammal Stranding Database`, spearheaded by Dr. Lemnuel Aragones of the UP Institute of Environmental Science and Meteorology. The idea of this project was practically born from the Philippine Marine Mammal Stranding Network (PMMSN), which will be established sooner in the City. Most of the initial data came from DA-BFAR, cooperating LGUs and DOSCST.

The DOSCST, BFAR, Philippine Coast Guard – Mati, City Tourism Police, City Agriculture, City Administrators Office, PENRO, City Tourism, DENR, and Media Relations in Mati conducted a round table forum, Vis – a Vis the orientation about the Philippine Marine Mammals Stranding Network (PMMSN) in response to cetacean strandings or beaching and protecting these endemic animals which Mati’s best proud of.

In Mati, duyong or dugong swims in the shallow coastal waters of dahican were they find protection from large waves and storms. It comes on surface only to breathe, and never come on to land. They like to live in large herds, but due to declining numbers are often now found in smaller "family" groups of between 3 and 6 duyongs.

Duyong’s/Dugong’s may reach 3m in length and weigh almost 500 kgs. They have a thick layer of fat giving them a distinctly rotund posture, small paddle-like flippers positioned far forward on the body and a broad, flattened, powerful tail that resembles the tail of whale. The Dugong (sometimes referred to as a "Seacow") is a mammal, that is, it suckles its young. They are large grey mammals which spend their entire lives in the sea. Though Acquatic it breathes air through lungs and has live babies not eggs like fish duyong swim by moving their broad spade-like tail in an up and down motion, and by use of their two flippers.

Dr. Aragones said that this is in line with the current global phenomenon of marine mammal stranding which has caused alarm to various authorities and scientists. It is currently focused on the dissemination of information on marine mammal conservation, protection and how to urgently act on possible marine mammal stranding. It has identified government offices which will compose the IEC (Information, Education and Communication) and Capability-Building Team for the Marine Mammal Stranding Network for Mati. BFAR said it must seek the cooperation and partnership of other government agencies since it could not do this alone.

Mayor Michelle Rabat said during the open forum, that through the help of local residents it will guaranty the protection and preservation of the marine mammals and other marine resources in Dahican and seawaters in Mati. “The public should be watchful in the protection and preservation of marine resources and save the endangered marine species,” she added.

Present during the forum are Representatives, BFAR, DENR, D.A, COAST GUARD, PNP, Brgy. Capt. Danny Acera, Mr. Richard Villacorte-City Administrator, Amihan Sa Dahican, Resort Owners and Dashiel Indelible-City Tourism Officer.
