Support

Coastal Conservation and Education Foundation has been actively protecting and rehabilitating Philippine marine areas for the past 20 years to ensure that our country has sustainable food source. We help coastal communities be resilient to the effects of global warming which affects their livelihood and threatens our food supply.

WE NEED YOUR HELP

The World is Warming.
Climate is changing

With the constant growth in human population, there is also an increasing amount of fossil fuels burning in our industry to cater to the needs of human population. With it, are greenhouse gases which reinforces increasing temperatures or what we call as “global warming”. Global warming does not only melt ice caps, but it is also an emerging threat to both of our coastal and marine ecosystems. One of its most prevalent effects are on coral reefs, whose calcium-carbonate skeletons are breaking because of increased ocean temperatures and acidifications

Philippine Fisheries are dying

The decline in fishery production is largely a result of the destruction of coral reefs, which serve as habitat for marine organisms. Coral reefs are suffering despite long-term measures outlawing damaging fishing practices. Overfishing in the West Philippine Seas is also a cause of concern. Supply of caught fishes have declined and prices have dramatically increased. Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) reported that 10 out of 13 fishing grounds or about 75% of the country’s fishing sites are overfished.

Threatened Biodiversity

The University of the Philippines Marine Science Institute and the Biodiversity Management Bureau further revealed that less than 1% of Philippine coral reefs are in excellent condition – an alarming fact, taking into account that many species of fish and invertebrates live and breed in coral reefs.

Our major habitats including seagrass beds, seaweeds and coral reefs are in degraded state. Many species have been declared threatened or endangered including marine mammals, marine turtles, some species of sharks and large fish and other mollusks and crustaceans.
