Cleaning up Manila Bay
MetadataShow full item record
Manila Bay was considered one of the world’s greatest harbors as it allowed trading between the natives of Manila and merchants from other countries. It was a haven for boat enthusiasts, couples, and those who seek some rest and recreation. It was also the backdrop for historic Battles of La Naval de Manila and Manila Bay. The modernization of the areas surrounding Manila Bay, however, took its toll on its calm and clean waters.
