Oceana senior advisor Alexandra Cousteau wrapped up her two-week tour with a diving trip to El Nido in Palawan, which she described as a "world-class" destination worthy of protection. Cousteau, granddaughter of renowned undersea explorer Jacques Cousteau, visited the Philippines from Aug. 29 to Sept.11 to promote awareness on sustainable fisheries management and the global fight against illegal fishing practices. She urged Filipinos to conserve the country's marine bounty, after seeing their beauty during her diving trips. "I just saw with my own eyes, and it is world-class," she said.
