Pilak No More At Pamilacan

via Bohol Times

Pilak no more at Pamilacan. The historical Spanish built centuries-old watchtower is a testament to the island’s history of ‘pilak’ or killing manta rays for their flesh sold to the market known locally as sanga. But the islanders have learned to value the importance of this endangered species. Now, as its alternative livelihood, this part of the island opens its doors to tourists to frolic on its white sandy beaches, go dolphin or whale watching, or go snorkeling and diving at its marine sanctuary.
