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. Its action is mainly focused on the island of Pangatalan and its surroundings in Shark Bay.


 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 restore Pangatalan Island whose ecosystems had been severely degraded. In 2011, when we arrived on the island, we decided to stop any negative impact. In 2016, we created a 46-hectare marine protected area surrounding the island of Pangatalan. Our development model integrates local people, the environment and an economy based on a sustainable strategy.
