Next week, the Philippine Speleological Society, in partnership with the Philippine Department of Environment and Natural Resources, will hold the 13th Philippine National Caving Congress.

The theme of the week-long event, which is expected to draw over 300 participants, will be “Harmonizing Management Interventions for the Sustainable Use of our Caves and Cave Resources.”

Hosted by the Protected Areas and Wildlife Division (PAWD) of DENR, the event aims to bring together many caving organizations, cavers and other stakeholders to discuss and review the country’s caving-related issues.

Beginning on April 8th, the first two days will be spent in Tagum City, Davao del Norte developing a cave management plan template. Then participants will be ferried to New Corella to visit six caves — Tibion Cave, Roman Cave, Gayas Cave, Bongsit Cave, Paradise Cave and Rickton Cave — during the final three days.
