It has also set up self-reliant people’s organization and established a sustainable livelihood for the community. The Poro MPA project is co-managed with the Poro Sea Lovers Association, a people’s organization based in Barangay Poro. Select members of the PSLA are also part of the Poro MPA Management Council and Bantay Dagat, which oversee the management, patrolling, monitoring, law enforcement and integration of the Poro MPA into the city’s MPA network.
