BIHA, warned motorboats against disposal of used crude oil in the sea

Written by: Bert Dalida

The Boracay Island Hopping Association or BIHA has given a warning to motorboats that are disposing used crude oil in the seas.

According to BIHA Chairman Rigoberto Gelito Jr, those who will be proven guilty of the violation - particularly those who are members of the island hopping group - will have their license canceled.

Gelito added that they will have an investigation on the said activity at the Boalabog Beach, which was earlier divulged by a boatman, whose name was withheld.

The BIHA chair firmly said that there should be a proper place for discarding the said used oil, and must not be disposed anywhere.

Meanwhile, aside from the warning, Gelito also encouraged the BIHA members to support the activities that promote the preservation of Boracay Island.
