In their effort to enhance competitiveness of underwater tourism industry and improve productivity of coral resources, the Sangkalikasan Cooperative together with Department of Science and Technology conducted a coral transplantation workshop at Grande Island last August 13-14.
The group is known for their expertise in restoring coral reefs in areas like Boracay, Zaboanga, Camiguin among others. The workshop was a crash course on how the group conducts the transplantation. Several representatives from private companies and organizations participated together with representatives from SBMA.
Subic Bay may never be known as a leisure dive destination. Although it is famous for its wreck sites for the more advanced and technical divers. And though it may never match the quality of the reefs of Anilao in Batangas and the hundreds of other dive sites in the country, we believe that Subic Bay can be known to be one of the successful Reef Restoration projects in the country. If there is one thing that we know we have, that is we have committed citizens who will do what we can to make this world a better place.
We salute our friends from Sangkalikasan for their dedication and thank you for sharing this wonderful discovery. You guys have definitely inspired us!
