Wild dharma is committed to being a part of the solution

 

 

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We at Wild Dharma take and integrated approach to development. We firmly believe that health and wellbeing includes the personal, the social and the environmental.

We take a whole systems approach.

We are well past the time when we can leave any of these out if we want effective results.

The global inequities, social unrest, mental health epidemics and environmental destruction is not the result of a balanced and mature human perspective.

We need to be addressing our inner lives as much as the external problems.

“The connection between what we are doing to ourselves

and what we are doing to the planet isn’t metaphorical”

This work requires an internal recalibration if we are to discover a renewed intimacy with ourselves, with others and with the natural world..

This really is an intimate process of befriending life. 

 

This process is baked in to your time at Wild Dharma where we support you, in your own way, to find more intimate and nourishing ways to touch and be touched by life.

To re-connect with what is of most value to you

Social Responsibility

Transforming Communities

Environmental Stewardship

Transforming the Future

We believe travel can be an agent for change and a force for good in the world.  

It can be a regenerative and life enhancing experience for our guests, for the local communities and the environment. 

Regenerative travel is the new best practice in travel and the cutting edge of market trends.

It seeks a positive outcome for everyone involved. 

Travellers these days want to know they are having a positive impact on the places they visit.

INCLUDE THE LOCAL COMMUNITIES

We are committed to development that includes the needs of the local communities,

SUPPORTING
LOCAL KNOWLEDGE

 There is an enormous amount of local knowledge and skills that go unrecognised. and unrewarded.

This includes weaving, carving, forest and marine knowledge among other things. There is plenty of scope for collaborative exchanges between our guests and the local people here.

We hope to provide market opportunities so they can earn a living and also preserve those skills within the community.

MEDICAL
CLINIC

We plan to set up a small medical clinic that will provide primary healthcare and support the local communities.  Many in the local area simply don't have access to health care, It's expensive and too far away. We hope to establish a small clinic to help track the major health concerns the locals deal with., especially among the children.

A high proportion of health issues are poverty related and lack of proper nutrition.

EDUCATION AND JOBS

Poverty is the main driver behind many of the challenges the local people face.. 

Too often, even as development comes to an area the local people miss out on the benefits.

We will be providing and creating job opportunities in the local area and doing what we can to improve the education opportunities for the younger members of the community.

CARE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

A pristine natural environment is one of the main reasons people come to Palawan
and it is important to preserve as an essential asset for the people of Palawan and future generations.

MARINE
CARE

Wild Dharma is a nesting site for several species of turtles. Every year we release hundreds of baby turtles into the sea. We are working in partnership with a local marine education group to document and protect these and other marine species. This includes reef protection measure as these act as fish nurseries.

Healthy coral reefs support healthy fish numbers which supports the local communities.

WILDLIFE SANCTUARY

The pristine nature of our rainforest reserve provides a unique opportunity for guests to experience some of Palawan's unique and rare wildlife in their own habitat.

Monkeys, monitor lizards, the elusive bearcat, otters, civets, wild boar, Palawan skunk and Palawan's peacock-pheasants, and countless birds and marine life.

With the help of local guides intimate encounters with rare wildlife is almost guaranteed.

CORAL
RESTORATION

Palawan is a part of the famous coral triangle which has been under threat from over fishing and reef destruction for decades, We play a small part in reef restoration and education with the help of a local marine care group. We have several coral gardens right off the beach in good condition and our aim is to protect these reefs as a part of a larger education program help regenerate other coral reefs in the area.

FOREST PROTECTION

We are completely off grid.  In keeping with our goal to be a zero-carbon resort.  All of our energy will come from renewable sources, mainly solar and micro hydro systems. 

We have an abundance of clean fresh mountain water which is important to the local communities as a primary source of water.

ORGANIC GARDENS

Food gardens will be seamlessly woven in to the resort landscaping. We intend establishing organic permaculture gardens to provide ample fresh organic food for our restaurant and also to provide a model for the local people who tend not to grow or eat too much fresh fruits and vegetables.

This also enhances the guest experience where they can participate in the gardens to plate process if they so choose, all as part of the whole systems regenerative travel experience.

RENEWABLE ENERGY

We are completely off grid.  In keeping with our goal to be a zero-carbon resort.  All of our energy will come from renewable sources, mainly solar and micro hydro systems.

We are definitely from the win/win school of management.  When staff is invested in our vision it makes for a happier and more productive business all round. Staff will be encouraged to participate in the very same life enhancing activities our guests do so they have first hand experience of what our guest are doing.

SPA
TREATMENTS

Our guests are invited to avail themselves of the many body centred treatments on offer.

these are an integral part of the overall experience for our guests and our staff.
