The Mambukal Resort and Wildlife Sanctuary in the town of Murcia in Negros Occidental has been temporarily closed again, this time due to damage caused by super typhoon “Odette.”

Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson said the reason for the closure was due to several large trees which have been downed by “Odette.”

At present the provincial government is already conducting clearing operations in the area, although Lacson noted that it could take awhile before the resort will be opened again for visitors.

He further added they are targeting to reopen the resort by the end of this week, although it would still depend as to how soon they could complete the clearing of downed trees as well as the clean-up of the premises from any debris left behind by the typhoon.

The Mambukal Resort and Wildlife Sanctuary was reopened to the public last December 1 after more than a year of closure brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tourists who want to visit the resort are required to pre-register at their main office located at the Provincial Capitol Building./DGB, WDJ
