With the diving season at the Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park about to start, the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) recently reminded divers of the “touch me not” policy when it comes to the rich marine biodiversity found in this United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) protected area. “The divers are not allowed to fish, use spears, touch corals or harvest sea clams and other marine creatures. These activities are really a no-no. The divers can only take pictures. Everything here are touch me nots,” said PCG Palawan district commander Commodore George Ursabia.
