Nestled in the heart of Metro Manila lies a natural paradise like no other. The Las Piñas - Parañaque Wetland Park, a Protected Ecotourism Area, is a gem that showcases the beauty of nature, while highlighting the importance of conservation and sustainability.

Composed of several habitats under simultaneous protection, the Las Piñas - Parañaque Wetland Park is a critical habitat that has been declared as such by the Philippine government. Its protection ensures the balance and preservation of its ecosystem, which is home to a vast array of flora and fauna.

Declared by the Ramsar Convention of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, the Wetland Park is recognized as a site of international importance for its crucial role in housing at least 158 species of migratory birds of vulnerable or critically endangered status from Siberia, Japan, and China. Tourists can witness these birds in their natural habitats, including the endangered Chinese egret and black-faced spoonbill.


Moreover, the Wetland Park boasts the most dense mangrove forest in Metro Manila. The mangroves serve as a natural filter, cleaning the water and providing a habitat for several species of marine life, including fish, crabs, and mollusks. These species are a testament to the Wetland Park's biodiversity and the importance of maintaining its fragile ecosystem.

Tourists visiting the Las Piñas - Parañaque Wetland Park can enjoy the beauty of nature while gaining a deeper understanding of the importance of environmental conservation. The park offers guided tours led by knowledgeable experts who provide visitors with information on the Wetland Park's unique features, its biodiversity, and the conservation efforts being made to protect it.

The Wetland Park is an ideal destination for birdwatchers, nature lovers, and anyone seeking a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of Metro Manila. With its stunning natural beauty and educational value, the Las Piñas - Parañaque Wetland Park is a must-visit for anyone looking to experience the best of what nature has to offer.
