    EVERY November, different sea turtle species—including the critically endangered Hawksbill, the endangered Green turtle, and the Olive Ridley—lay eggs on the shores of Simpocan.

    “We recognize the value of the sea turtle conservation project in Simpocan in maintaining Palawan’s position as the country’s last frontier,” said Vivant Energy COO Emil Andre Garcia. “Vivant takes its responsibility towards the environment seriously and our values are shared by our subsidiaries and partners.”

    Simpocan is a vital site to the conservation of sea turtles. The barangay was one of the beneficiaries of Candis 3 Marketing Cooperative (C2MC) marine turtle conservation project funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) from 2014 to 2016. Since its turnover, the project has been managed by the City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) in Puerto Princesa with the help of the Simpocan community.

    Vivant Energy Corporation and its subsidiary Delta P Inc. vowed to continue supporting local officials and volunteers who are protecting a sanctuary for sea turtles in Barangay Simpocan, Puerto Princesa City in Palawan.

    Vivant Energy recently donated solar-powered flashlights, T-shirt uniforms and aquabags to volunteers of the sanctuary. Earlier, Delta P rehabilitated the generator set of Barangay Simpocan and facilitated the training of some residents who are tasked to maintain the equipment.
