With your help, we are able to support:
Eleven youth-led projects
Building on the SEA Camps from 2015-2019, Save Philippine Seas and the U.S.
Embassy in the Philippines launched the SEA Camp Summit in 2020. The SEA Camp Summit sought emerging conservation leaders with proposals for online and offline advocacy campaigns and community-based projects addressing issues in illegal, unregulated, and unreported fishing and marine debris in the Philippines and other countries in Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. Eleven (11) projects were selected from a competitive pool of applicants. The projects were
co-funded by The Marketplace using proceeds from the Crazy Rich Oceans 2020 summer campaign.
The maintenance and installation of
mooring buoys in Cebu
The donation from the 2021 summer campaign of The Marketplace and Save Philippine Seas was used for the maintenance and reinstallation of four mooring buoys in the marine protected area (MPA) network in Daanbantayan Island, Cebu. The four MPAs are Dakit-Dakit, Lighthouse, Los Bamboos, and Ka Osting.
At least 10 species of sharks and rays have been spotted in Daanbantayan's municipal waters. Mooring buoys not only demarcate the MPAs but also provide a spot for boats to moor. By mooring to the buoys, fisherfolk and diving boats
avoid throwing anchors in the MPAs, reducing coral damage. Since these species are migratory, healthier reefs could mean healthier populations of sharks and rays.
