ABOUT CORON AND CORONGALERI

Established in the year 2000, Corong Lokals is a local based micro entity in Coron Palawan promoting community based projects from locally produced and environmentally-friendly products to eco-tourism operations. It highly promotes handworks of local populace especially from tribal minorities situated in the island barangays and upland communities. We have adopted a fishing village who community members are willing to provide logistics in the marine based activities such as island tours.

During its second year, partnership programs and projects with the Indigenous people local artist was extended to the rest of Calamianes Group of Islands namely Busuanga, Coron, Culion and Linapacan that provided avenue for the promotion of Calamianes' traditional products, arts and related handicrafts.

Corporate Social Responsibility & Community Based Ecotourism

Our operation highly encourages community participation. Corong Galeri Lokals promotes local artists' handicrafts, arts and music while Calamianes Expeditions & Ecotours involves minimum of seven families in each ecotour activity.

Community-based tourism is socially sustainable tourism which is initiated and almost always operated exclusively by local people. Shared leadership emphasizing community well-being over individual profit, balancing power within communities, and fostering traditional culture, conservation, and responsible stewardship of the land

We adopted a coastal villagers from Barangay Lajala who are former fishermen and engaged their boats into a tourists compatible boats with MARINA ( http://www.marina.gov.ph/default.aspx ) Standards and Safety Requirements.
