The newly organized Zaters or the Zamboanga Adventure Tourism and Eco-Recreation Society had a joyful Christmas celebration at the Sky Park last December 26.  Officers and members had fun the whole night of singing and dancing. The event bonded their friendship stronger and better.

Zaters was organized in the middle part of last year to promote the eco-tourism of Zamboanga City. Through the coordination of the Department of Tourism and the Philippine Information Agency, the group was able to gathered private individuals, government employees, and companies who believe that Zamboanga City has many undiscovered and wonderful natural environment places.Initially, the group was able to visit the protected forest in Pasonanca, the majestic Merloquet Falls, and was able to re-visit too and appreciate Sta. Cruz Island.

Last December, the Zaters was able to get the support of Zamboanga City government through Zamboanga City Mayor Celso Lobregat. This year the Zaters will be scouting more tourism potential places and help promote it. By doing so, they know that the people living around these places will have extra income and can invite investors for its development. The Zaters officers and members are grateful to their sponsors like Coca-Cola, PIA (bags), Vangie of NYC, and DOT OIC Bernard Gregorio (for the lechon).

To all the Zaters,may the Bunny Year 2001 hop/jump up Zamboanga City to greater heights of glory! Thanks to people like you, our city will be great again.
