A sustainable future for the West Philippine Sea
MetadataShow full item record
It takes a foreigner to sound the alarm on the devastation occurring in the West Philippine Sea. For years, the Chinese Communist Party and the Philippine government have downplayed the wreckage happening to the fragile underwater ecosystems in the West Philippine Sea. Due to China’s dredging and reclamation activities, thousands of hectares of coral reefs are now damaged beyond repair. Bear in mind that the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia and Malaysia rely on these aquatic resources as their primary source of seafood.
