Buntod Cave may become a tourist site in Cagayan de Oro
Led by Engineer Armen Cuenca, the Cave Management TWG (Technical Working Group) proudly presented and turned over to the local government their project, Buntod Cave Map in Sitio Langag, Barangay Dansolihon.
The TWG started the study in 2018, with the goal to identify and protect the environment and promote tourism in Cagayan de Oro.
In their report, the Cave Management TWG started their assessment of Buntod Cave in June 2022. The Buntod Cave is only one of the nine caves the TWG group assessed.
On Monday, October 17, the TWG visited and presented the map to Mayor Uy in his office.
The mayor was happy about the study because, for the mayor, tourism’s development is a great help to the economy. But it does not mean that the administration neglects the Indigenous People’s rights and culture.
The TWG members are the Department of Environment and Natural Resources Region 10 – PENRO, CENRO, Clenro (City Local Environment and Natural Resources Office), Department of Tourism, City Tourism Council, City Engineering Office, and City Planning and Development Office. – WhatALife!/Zed
