Many were surprised by the administration’s order to close down Boracay since it is one of the Philippines’ top tourist destinations and for many of the residents, their livelihood depended on the influx of tourists of the island.

Although the decision was initially met with opposition, photos circulating in social media sites display improvements in Boracay’s beaches and waters.

Another testament to Boracay’s continuing improvement is the appearance of a whale shark last week. Sightings of these gentle giants are not unusual in Boracay, but they rarely visit the disturbed waters due to the numerous aquatic sports activities around the island.
