EcoCamp by the SEASEA Institute-Verde Island Passage conducted its first EcoCamp by the SEA for this summer season with a two-day EcoCamp for students from the Canadian American School.
Held at the Paradiso Rito Beach Resort in Mabini, Batangas, the young EcoCampers learned about the biodiversity of the Verde Island Passage and the threats facing this unique resource. SEA Institute also partnered with De La Salle University, California Academy of Sciences and PUSOD Inc. to kick off a two-year community reef monitoring project in the Verde Island Passage. Workshops and training sessions were held in Tingloy and Mabini to teach coastal communities effective and safe techniques to monitor the health of their coral reefs. The project is funded by the OML Center to address the impact of climate change on vulnerable coastal communities.
