The Alegria Provincial Government established a Marine Park Entrance Fee System based on Tickets. Tickets are purchased for a fee of 100 Pesos (about 2 $) per dive. The local government will utilise these funds to finance a number of high priority conservation programs in the area, including patrols and enforcement to abolish destructive fishing practices such as blast and cyanide fishing, village improvement programs within the park, collection and disposal of plastic and other wastes entering the park’s waters, marine conservation education of village children and adults, and reef and mangrove rehabilitation. Tickets can be purchased through Alegria Dive Resort. We greatly appreciate your support and cooperation with this entrance fee system. Conservation of Sta. Filomena’s spectacular marine habitats requires funding, and your entrance fee is a valuable contribution to saving Alegria’s reefs.
