A group of 25 women keeps the beach clean, said Nonie Enolva, spokesperson of the regional Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources. The women were organized by the Department of Agriculture under the Philippine Rural Development Project and the US Agency for International Development program’s Ecosystems Improved for Sustainable Fisheries (Ecofish) Project. According to Enolva, Subic’s sand is pink because red fragments of organ pipe coral (Tubipora musica) have mixed with white sand in the area.
