BEACH CLEANUP

In time for summer holidays, the Provincial Government of Ilocos Norte is strengthening the campaign for a cleaner and greener province by embarking on a massive clean-up of key tourist destinations as part of the Provincial Tourism Ambassador Program. The cleanup drive carried out by 300 tourism ambassadors and participants from local government units aims to maintain the cleanliness of the province’s coastlines, water systems, rivers, and waterfalls. Ilocos Norte expects a further rise in tourist influx this year. (photo by PGIN-CMO)
