Created in 2012, Sulubaaï Environmental Foundation (SEF) is a Philippine-based non-profit organization dedicated to conserve, protect, and restore the natural resources of Palawan through environmentally sustainable practices and active ecosystems restoration. It is a private initiative funded by eco-tourism.


 Sulubaaï Environmental Foundation was born out of a common love for the ocean and desire to help the local communities of Palawan. We decided to implement the first project site on Pangatalan Island. In 2011, we found the island in various states of damage so our first task was to prevent further negative impact. In 2016, we started focusing our efforts on a 45-hectare Marine Protected Area (MPA) surrounding Pangatalan island. Our development model comprises people, environment, and the economy hinged on a sustainable strategy.
