CORREGIDOR POSSESSES A BRILLIANT - BUT AS YET UNTAPPED - POTENTIAL FOR TOURISM IN BIRD WATCHING. THIS NEW MARKET WILL NOT BE ACHIEVED WITHOUT MAKING A LONG TERM COMMITMENT TOWARDS THE IMPROVEMENT OF ITS ECOSYSTEM.  THE KEY TO DEVELOPING RENEWABLE TOURISM REVENUE FOR CORREGIDOR DOES NOT END WITH RESOLVE, OR EVEN BY DETERRING ROGUE SCRAPPERS, ARRESTING THE TYRANNY OF RUST AND PROPPING UP FAILING CONCRETE.  THOSE HELP, YES, BUT THE COMMITMENT MUST TRANSCEND EVEN CUTTING GRASS, AND THE SWEEPING AND BURNING OF LEAVES.  IT NEEDS TO VENTURE INTO PIONEERING ECO-REBUILDING ACTIVITIES WHICH PROTECT AND REGENERATE WILDLIFE THAT CANNOT BE SEEN IN MANILA - OR THE OTHER PLACES TO WHICH TOURISTS HAVE EASY ACCESS.  THE FACTORS WHICH PREVENT CORREGIDOR'S ASCENDANCY INTO THE RANKS OF THE HEAVY-WEIGHT BIRD-WATCHING  DESTINATIONS INCLUDE TWO OF THE MOST POTENT AND FERAL SPECIES KNOWN TO THE ISLAND'S ECOSYSTEM  -- HOMO POLLUTIS AND FELIS CATUS.
