MetadataShow full item record
A total of 1,013,340 hectares covering both the coastal and offshore waters of Cagayancillo, plus another 80,000 hectares in Aborlan Palawan were recently declared as Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). This is part of a two-country initiative by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and Foundation Segre to rebuild the fish stocks of the Coral Triangle by changing the way people view protected areas. The project aims to expand the network of critical marine areas that are protected, effectively-managed and sustainably financed in the Coral Triangle.
