The Boracay Foundation Incorporated (BFI) is to circulate signage of Boracay ordinances within the island and some areas in Caticlan.

This is after piles of trash were left to scatter at the shoreline this past LaBoracay celebration where various events were conducted.

According to the BFI, they are to place the signage at the Caticlan Airport and Jetty Port.

A giant signboard with Do’s and Don’t’s in Boracay will also be placed at the Cagban Port.

The BFI acknowledges the fact that many tourists are still unaware of the ordinances in the island and so they freely do what isn’t suppose to be done more so if they are not given notice by the authority.

The Local Government of Malay strictly prohibits smoking, drinking, and eating at the beach front because many would just leave their trash by the shores.

Those caught will be penalized accordingly.

The BFI is meanwhile working with other organization under the Boracay Beach Management Program (BBMP) to put the plan into action.
