I was meeting with people that would be teaching me hydroponics when they said to meet them around Bancao-Bancao. They told me the directions and said that I’ll be passing by a place where there are boats. First thing came to my mind was “What are the boats doing there?!?!? There’s no water surrounding that area?” When we passed by that area they pointed to the big blue boat and a “Christmas tree” made of Chainsaws. When I saw the word Museum I knew that I had to go back.

So the next day, after finishing some work I did go back. All I remember was that the Museum was located about 250 meters away from the Airport of Puerto Princesa City at Abrea-Manalo Street Intersection. Since I was in the town proper, I walked to the Capitol and rode a tricycle there and told the driver that I wanted to go to the Museum with a big boat and Christmas Tree chainsaw located near the airport. Unfortunately, most of the drivers did not know of the place. So I ended up telling the driver that I will point the way.
So after about 10 Pesos and 2-3 minutes on the tricycle, I was now in front of Environmental Enforcement Museum.

Upon arrival I registered on their log book and paid the registration fee of 20 Pesos/person. This was where they told me that the museum had just started just last April 2013. And it was a project of Palawan NGO Network Inc. (PNNI), a network of Non-Government Organization (NGO) that actively helps protect and preserve the Natural Environment (Trees, plants, animals and wildlife) of Palawan. I was really glad when they told me that my registration fee would be used to support their work to protect the environment of Palawan.
