The activity aims to equip the participants with the knowledge and skills on the protocols when they encounter marine wildlife including rescue and proper handling of these animals.

III. Plastic Reduction in Marine Environment

This is a project funded by the Coca-Cola Foundation Philippines implemented from January to December 2020 with the following objectives:

1. Enhance the biophysical condition of Marine Protected Areas for better ecosystems services.
2. Improve waste segregation at source in the selected semi-urban areas.
3. Improve the quality of life of the people thru the establishment of a community-based recycling project that will provide additional income to participating families.
4. Empower women and provide benefits to children.
