(MPIC), is stepping up it's efforts to preserve and conserve these reefs. This March, Shore It Up! (SIU), MPIF's environmental awareness initiative, celebrates it's anniversary with simultaneously underwater and coastal clean-up drives with the organization's local government unit (LGU) partners in the municipalities of Alaminos, Mabini, Puerto Galera, Cordova, Del Carmen, Medina and the province of Surigao del Norte.
