200 crocs newest Subic attraction

SUBIC BAY FREEPORT—The release of 200 crocodiles here on Oct. 24 signaled the launching of the latest offering of one of the country’s premiere Safari spots.

Zoobic Safari has adopted the saltwater crocodiles from Palawan as part of its tourist attraction and wildlife conservation program in its two-hectare facility inside this freeport.

“This project is a joint effort between the Japan International Cooperation Agency, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority to help save and preserve these crocodiles which are now considered to be endangered species,” Robert Yupangco, Zoobic Safari president, said during the first public viewing of the crocodiles.

SBMA Chair Feliciano Salonga said Zoobic Safari’s latest attractions are expected to boost tourist arrivals here.

“This is a very good program for kids and adults alike who come here to enjoy and be entertained, yet at the end of the day, they leave with the notion that they have also learned something new,” Salonga said. Allan Macatuno, Inquirer Central Luzon
