Palawan Cove Corporation’s property is located in Boayan Island, the largest island in San Vicente, Palawan, where the company is maintaining a coral nursery as part of its reef rehabilitation efforts in Daplac Cove.
The site is set to become a major diving and snorkelling destination. Palawan Cove is currently anticipating its declaration as a Marine Protected Area, making it the third largest protected coral reef in the country, next to Apo Reef and Tubbataha.
Palawan Cove is home to a wide array of flora, including the white mangrove. Also known by its scientific name, Laguncularia racemosa, these flowering and fruit-bearing trees are normally found in West Africa, the Carribean, and the Galapagos Islands, among others. The Company hopes to preserve and propagate the white mangroves in the area as they only add to Palawan Cove’s rich biodiversity.
