The Taal Lake Yacht Club (TLYC) in Talisay, Batangas recently hosted the first Cartridge World Cup in Taal Lake to highlight the need to protect the environment.

The sailing tournament bore a “green component” because of the environmental advocacies of TLYC and Cartridge World.

TLYC has been educating the public for more that a decade on the appreciation of the ecosystem of Taal Lake, one of the country’s biggest inland bdies of water, through the sport of hobie sailing, environmental clean-ups and nature trails to Taal Volcano.

The lake, which is a habitat to endemic fish species, is threatened by pollution because of the thousands of fish cages which dump chemical feeds and solid wastes.
