Project Zacchaeus (PZC), in collaboration with Project Forest, has launched an educational initiative aimed at young residents of Puerto Princesa, particularly those near the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park. This initiative involves the distribution of a Solid Waste Management (SWM) booklet, designed to educate the youth on proper waste management techniques that support the conservation of their local environment.

The SWM booklet is tailored to inform young people about effective waste disposal practices, including recycling, composting, and minimizing waste. These practices are critical in protecting the surrounding natural resources of the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its stunning natural beauty and biodiversity.

By targeting the younger population, Project Zacchaeus and Project Forest aim to foster a generation that is aware of and actively engaged in environmental protection. The booklet serves as a practical guide that equips the youth with the knowledge and skills needed to contribute to the sustainability of their community.

The collaboration between these two environmental organizations highlights the importance of community-based education in achieving long-term conservation goals. Through initiatives like the SWM booklet, Project Zacchaeus and Project Forest are making significant strides in nurturing an environmentally conscious mindset among the youth of Puerto Princesa.

This proactive approach not only benefits the immediate area but also sets a precedent for other communities to follow, potentially leading to broader environmental improvements across the region. As this educational project unfolds, it promises to make a substantial impact on the preservation efforts for the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, ensuring its beauty and ecological integrity remain intact for generations to come.
