Bohol is an island province surrounded by the richness of nature, and this can be experienced firsthand at the Talibon Mangrove Co-Management Area. This is a seemingly enchanted forest of 580 hectares of lush mangrove vegetation where one can do boat-paddling along the winding Ipil River. One is easuily immersed in the serenity of nature, being among the wild ducks, herons, egrets, and elusive troops of monkeys.
Talibon Mangrove Co-Mgt. Project is a comprehensive management in resource utilization and revenue generation of the LGU in partnership with the DENR, and stakeholders that are fishpond operators & other occupant users. It is the first of its kind in the Philippines.
Another attraction to behold is the presence of centuries-old “Piyapi” trees growing naturally in numbers.
There is a passage into the secluded recesses of the 580-hectare mangrove forest where one can experience peace and serenity. Feel the cool, soothing touch of nature and witness the romantic beauty of this man-made wilderness.
