RULES

1. Pets are allowed but owners must sign a statement of responsibility for any damage or injury their pet might cause, as well as an obligation to pick up after their pets.

2. Any type of dumping is prohibited within the TVPL. Guests who bring in their own food or supplies (including used sanitary products) must take away all their non-biodegradable trash. The term biodegradable as used here is equivalent to “compostable” in industry-speak, meaning the waste must degrade at the same rate as leaf-litter. Plastic bags marked “biodegradable” must be brought out of the the center and disposed where there are proper mechanisms for disposal outside the TVPL.

3. The center prides itself in reducing economic leakage brought about by tourism. As such, guests are encouraged to patronize local businesses for their needs. There are local caterers who are ready to take food orders and other services may be available in the community. Please ask.

4. Smoking is not allowed in the entire compound. Smokers are welcome but they should smoke elsewhere downwind such as on the street. The Center seeks to be child-friendly and no amount of exposure to cigarette smoke is safe, so in the interest of other guests, all smoking must be done outside the premises. Smokers are also asked to bring their cigarette butts with them out of the TVPL.

5. The center accepts all reports on the state of the environment in Taal Lake for its databases., preferably thorough ones and those that have direct application for conservation. It also accepts volunteers and donations that can either go to the maintenance of the center or to direct conservation measures under the TVPL Management Plan.

6. Loud music, lewd or raucous behavior or nudity that would tend to offend other guests or the community shall not be tolerated and guests engaging in such shall be asked to leave immediately

7. Only the drying areas can be used to hang up wet clothes or vests.

8. Guests are asked to exercise the courtesy of ensuring that their use of the restrooms and washing areas will not render these areas unfit for the next users. TLCC does not employ a large number of staff as its income is intended to support Center operations and conservation.

9. Absolutely no cutting of plants or picking of flowers. These are intended for the birds and butterflies. Fires may be lit only in the center of the Dap-ay or inside grillers brought in by guests.

10. Guests are requested to keep an eye on their children at all times. There are no lifeguards on the premises and TLCC assumes no responsibility for the safety of minors. We ask all guests to consider that they may have a role to play in ensuring the safety of all minors and encourage those who have life-saving skills to help TLCC ensure the safety of all minors.
