Save an Acre of lagoon in the Philippines
Manamoc Island, Philippines
The Philippines, a country of more than 7,000 islands, is a major component of the Coral Triangle, the epicenter of world marine biodiversity.
Manamoc is a small, round island in the Cuyo Archipelago. Its southern half surrounds Caseledan Lagoon, a 272-acre body of water containing a rich ecosystem of mangroves, seagrass, and the myriad animal species—fish, crabs, clams, and more—that depend on them. The lagoon habitat is an important part of the island’s overall ecology.
Seacology has worked with the people of Manamoc Island since 2008. The community set up a marine protected area around the island’s coral reefs, eliminating destructive fishing practices, and regularly patrolling the area. A Seacology grant funded solar power infrastructure for the community.
Our new project recommits to our partnership with the island’s people,who have committed to protect Caseledan Lagoon for the next 25 years. In return, Seacology is funding a much-needed community center. Your donation will fund protection of one or more acres of this thriving, unique marine habitat.
