Boracay corals dying fast, says group
MetadataShow full item record
After concerns have been raised about the deteriorating water quality at a portion of the pristine White Beach of the island in Malay, Aklan province, a coral reef rehabilitation group has now reported mass dying of corals. The report, however, has been refuted by a business group that is also undertaking a beach management project, including the rehabilitation of corals. The Sangkalikasan Producer Cooperative claimed that its monitoring team observed the mass dying of corals and marine species during a semiannual survey conducted from October to November last year.
