Marine area confined !

Watch & Protect

 

The Phillipines are in lockdown. Pangatalan Island, our small islet, is also in containment, and the workforce is reduced to only 7 people. Day and night, we control our marine protected area because illegal fishermen take advantage of the decline in vigilance in the bay to venture into the protection zone.
