DOT puts up visitors’ lounge at Eagle camp

DAVAO CITY (MIndaNews / August 10) – A new, more visitor-friendly lounge will rise at the Philippine Eagle Center this year, to help attract more visitors and raise consciousness on the conservation effort to save the Philippine Eagle.

The Department of Tourism has promised P5 million to construct it and Secretary Joseph Ace Durano has urged tourism operators attending the opening ceremonies of the Second Mindanao Travel Exposition Thursday to include the eagle conservation camp among their destinations.    

The Philippine Eagle Foundation will be the second institution to receive a DOT infrastructure funding, Durano told MindaNews. 

Durano said the eight-month construction will start by September. PEC volunteer architect Francis Hidalgo designed the new lounge that Durano described as “modern and close to nature.” Read the rest of the report on MindaNews.com.
