US Embassy supports Marine Conservation Camp in Coron
MetadataShow full item record
The US Embassy is supporting 30 outstanding youth leaders aged 18 to 23 selected from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao to attend the culminating Sea and Earth Advocates (SEA) Camp in Coron, Palawan from June 10 to 14. The 10 representatives from each region were chosen based on the marine and coastal conservation project proposals they pitched to a panel of mentors at the end of each regional SEA Camp. The winning proposals from each region are receiving funding for their implementation from US Embassy Manila, as well as assistance and guidance from local partners and Save Philippine Seas (SPS). At the culminating SEA Camp, the regional representatives will give updates about their accomplishments. Ten projects will have the chance to receive additional funding to take their projects further. SEA Camp is a partnership between SPS and the US Embassy in Manila and aims to empower youth aged 18 to 23 to play bigger roles in conservation. SEA Camp is also supported by Bobble, CP Kelco, Havaianas, Human Nature, Lagu, Nipa Foods, and Smart Communications, Inc.
