Abstract

This study aimed to assess the mangrove ecosystem management of stakeholders in a selected community for ecological tourism. It sought to identify the responsible stakeholders involved in the mangrove ecosystem management of the identified community, the actions taken by each stakeholder in the maintenance of the mangrove ecosystem, the extent of implementation of the actions/programs of the stakeholders in the maintenance of the mangrove ecosystem and the feasibility of creating an ecological tourism program for the area. The study was conducted in the mangrove ecosystem of Cagsao, a village in the town of Calabanga, province of Camarines Sur, Philippines. The participants of the study were the stakeholders involved in the management system from the initial plantation until the present activities. The data collected covered all the programs/activities/actions taken by each stakeholder from the year of their initial involvement up to the conduct of the study. The results gleaned from the study shed light on the management system efficiency and sustainability derived from constant monitoring and training, creating a rich mangrove ecosystem that is not only ecologically sustainable but is opportune for tourism and economic benefit of the community.
