is a conservation organization
and was founded by:
1.Ming, an environmentalist and native of Camotes Island.
2.Errol "Budoy" Marabiles,
a multi awarded artist musician who specializes in installation
3.Emmanuel Bayot Jr.,
a physical and spiritual well being instructor.
Their goal is conserving and improving the environment of
Camotes Island and the life of its people.
Bugsay wishes to come up with steady and consistent long
term projects which will make the Camoteños prefer non destructive
and highly sustainable economic activities.
Bugsay, like the native boat paddle it is named after,
believes in slow, smooth but decisive strokes that will bring
the people and the place to a balanced ecology, a sustainable
environment and a socially responsible economy.
Bugsay feels that before any form of socio-economic activity
is endorsed, the people should be made aware of the following:
1) The ill effects of existing destructive means of
making a living.
2) Similar destructive methods which should be kept
out of the place.
3) The environment-friendly
non destructive alternative to these methods
4) The long term benefits of these non destructive methods
towards attaining a sustainable environment
5) The inter-connectedness between the life of their
environment and their personal lives .
6) The inter-connectedness between their immediate environment
and the whole of nature.
7) That there are other healthier and more prosperous
lifestyles other than what they are currently practicing and
that they can, should they choose, live them.
Bugsay plans to introduce these awareness via art, music,
literature, physical excercises, health lectures and livelihood
Bugsay, in relation to the awareness drive it espouses, endorses
the following activities:
1) To get statistics on the people’s health and diet
2) To encourage a balance diet and excercise-inclusive
3) To conduct pro-recycling creativity workshops
4) To introduce environmental-friendly handicrafts;
5) To promote eco-tourism
6) To set up a marine sanctuary
7) To set up a cooperative.
Bugsay particularly targets women and children for most
of its activities because it feels they are the marginalized
sectors of the Camotes community.
Bugsay includes the following topics under lecture forum
1) environmental awareness
2) Women’s health
3) Family planning
4) Laws covering marine life and practices
5) Contagious diseases and epidemics
Bugsay includes the following in the culture/entertainment
4) film showing (by CCP sineklab, Cebu chapter)
5) story telling (local myths)
6) balak/sugilanon sessions
Bugsay will be coming up with longer, more concrete and
more extensive programs that will stay on course with this existing
Bugsay states its goals and rationale on/of art as: the
awareness of the inter-relation of art and environment; the
awareness that recycling can be a source of new exciting ways
of making art; that new
ways of looking at often discarded objects can improve the environment
as it minimizes waste while giving birth to new art forms. This
in turn, Bugsay hopes, will give rise to an alternative art view and foster
Bugsay envisions a holistic
approach to a dynamic life that will not separate mind and body,
soul and flesh, man and environment, which it will plan to achieve
thru proper diet, exercise and meditation.
