El Nido Ten Commandments

1.Do behold but touch not the coral whose gracious souls are wrapped within their delicate bodies.

2.Do be kind to the fauna on the land and in the sea. Care for them as you would a human friend,respecting their space.

3.Do leave nothing behind that will spoil the pristine beauty of El Nido. Littering is an offense against nature.

4. Do help keep the waters of El Nido clear, the sand pure, and the forests lush and green. Let waste be deposited in their proper place so that they do not find their way into the mouths of our animals.

5. Do marvel at the marine and terrestrial creatures. Leave them unscathed so that others may see their magnificence. Remember that the shells in the sea are infinite in number.

6. Do share time with the people…get to know them…. But remember to respect their unique culture.

7. Do observe the symbolic relationship of living things. Every single organism – however tiny – has a role in our ecosystem.

8. Do respect all forms of life and realize that there are limits to El Nido’s life support system. Help preserve El Nido’s fragile beauty.

9. Do sustain and heal the earth for it is our children who shall endure whatever damage we inflict upon nature.

10. Do make a pledge to live an environmentally ethical life. It is our duty to take care of the earth we live in.

Tapyas is a Cuyunon term which means sliced from the whole. According to the history, during the Second World War, the American Soldiers discovered that the Japanese Troops were hiding at Mt. Tapyas. Based at the present location of Claudio Sandoval Elementary School, they targeted and bombed the said mountain, with the old cañon near the flagpole as the living proof thus resulting to destroy a part of the mountain.

Palawan is composed of the long and narrow Palawan Island, plus a number of other smaller islands surrounding the main island. The Calamianes Group of Islands, to the northwest consists of Busuanga Island, Culion Island, and Coron Island. 

Durangan Island almost touches the westernmost part of Palawan Island, while Balabac Island is located off the southern tip, separated from Borneo by the Balabac Strait. In addition, Palawan covers the Cuyo Islands in the Sulu Sea. The disputed Spratly Islands, located a few hundred kilometers to the west is considered part of Palawan by the Philippines, and is locally called the Kalayaan Group of Islands.
