DE La Salle University Br. Alfred Shields FSC Ocean Research Center (DLSUSHORE) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines embarked on consecutive reef research trips last April and May of this year. Dubbed “Designing of Monitoring and Evaluation System for Coral Reef Resilience and Fisheries Sustainability in Northeast Palawan through Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) or Network of MPAs,” the collaboration, which was funded by WWF-Singapore, covered the areas of Tubbataha, Cagayancillo islands, Honda Bay, and Taytay, Palawan. It also included an assessment of the ship grounding sites of Ming Ping Yu and the USS Guardian. According to DLSU-SHORE Director Dr. Wilfredo Licuanan, both of these sites are recovering.
