Ayaw natin ma-Boracay! Coron Mayor Jerry Barracoso appeals to townsfolk to join clean-up
The closure of Boracay has served as a cautionary tale for island resort towns in the Philippines, and Coron is one of those that has sat up and listened.
Coron Mayor Jerry Barracoso, in a Facebook post, exhorted his town mates to make sure to throw their trash in the proper place.
They should also keep their surroundings clean and be mindful of their responsibilities as residents of this popular tourist town, he said.
There is no place like Coron, so they should all take care of it, he added.
We’re sure nobody wants Coron to be shut down to tourists, so better listen up!
“Para hindi po maipasara ang Coron, tulong tulong po tayo sa pagtapon ng ating basura ng tama. Tapat mo linis mo. Gawin po natin ang ating responsibilidad bilang isang Coronian. Iisa lang po ang Coron kaya ingatan natin ito!,” Barracoso posted.
