The MPA database is another long-running project of CCEF. The information of more than 500 marine protected areas, both community based and nationally managed are stored and easily accessed.

CCEF strongly advocates for the establishment of Marine Protected Areas. The foundation has been directly involved in setting up hundreds of MPAs nationwide. Shown here, CCEF staff are installing buoys which will clearly mark the MPA's boundary to the public.

Organizations partner with CCEF when they want to do something good for the environment. In one of the events of the One Million Mangroves for Cebu Project, CCEF and Rotary International held this reforestation activity with club members, students, and town officials.

Saving Philippine Reefs is CCEF's oldest continuously running project. From the 1980s to the present, data gathered by SPR from various reef areas in the Philippines have been used in managing these very important coastal habitats. In the picture, CCEF staff prepare for the day's first dive.

CCEF is a non-stock, non-profit organization serving a leadership role in managing Philippine coastal habitats. Our work has shown many times that sustainable use of marine resources is possible when local governments and communities are actively involved in managing them.

Where we work

CCEF works in the Philippines which is one of the six member-countries of the Coral Triangle Initiative. The Coral Triangle has been identified as the region with the highest biodiversity in marine life globally. Being wholly inside the Coral Triangle, Phillipine marine habitats possess a lot of endemic species, some known only recently, while many are still waiting to be discovered. CCEF has several project sites in partnership with local governments in the Philippines.
