I was searching the internet about the recently concluded expedition also held at Panglao for this year, 2005. I was very surprised to read this article. I'd like to add some bits of information: the Philippines is currently sustaining more than 500 Marine Protected Areas throughout the country. The government and academic institutes, however, are striving to extablish more so that one-half of the total shelf of the archipelago will be sustained. It's a long term project but very feasible.

Its good to see the Filipino community taking serious consideration to saving the diverse sea life , setting up sanctuaries and studying the ocean life . It is a coincidence that we were at Alona beach when these scientists were doing their research at the resort . Not only is this important for the well being of the planet but also for the future of tourism and travellers dollars into the community . I was very surprised to see the dramatic results achieved by the man made reef in Dauin in Negros Oriental . We were told this reef , made of used car tyres , was only 5 years established and was already attracting scuba divers ( and their money ) from all parts of the globe . Thank God that the days of dynamite and cyanide fishing seem to be behind us . Richard Van Raay
