The Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (Penro) of Aklan province on Friday joined the call of the Department of Tourism (DOT) for the regulation of fire dancers and lighted sand castles in the island resort. DOT earlier said that fire dancers and lighted sand castles in Boracay could possibly create a beach pollution in the area. Aklan Penro Chief Ivene Reyes agreed to DENR’s observation saying that “both fire dancers and lighted sand castle-makers use gas in their activities. The gas used, however, were being thrown at the beach and this may attribute to beach pollution.” Reyes added that right now the situation is not alarming but he said that it could happen of the fire-related activities in the area are not regulated. Fire dancing and lighted sand castles are a common beach attractions in this resort island.
