Aboitizpower subsidiary Therma South, Inc. (TSI), successfully released 84 sea turtle or pawikan hatchlings last April 25, 2024. These hatchlings mark a significant milestone following the nesting of 120 eggs along the plant's coast last March. 

The presence of nesting sea turtles along the coal-fired power plant’s coastline is a testament to TSI's unwavering commitment to environmental stewardship and biodiversity conservation.

In 2019, TSI also discovered three sea turtle nests along its shore and the TSI team together with the Environmental Management Bureau (EMB) and local experts have helped 300 hatchlings to find their way to the sea. 

This not only highlights the TSI’s dedication to preserving marine life but also signifies  its proactive efforts in protecting biodiversity and fostering thriving aquatic habitats within the region.

Located on the border of Davao City and the Municipality of Sta. Cruz, Davao del Sur, TSI remains steadfast in its efforts to promote sustainable practices and make a positive impact on the communities and ecosystems it serves.
