Puerto Princesa is a coastal city in the Palawan islands. It is base for boat trips through the massive limestone caves and even became part of the famous “Seven Wonders of the world.” And destruction of the coral reefs is becoming a big issue and problem that is why Palawan Governor Jose Alvarez has urged reef-fish-for-food (RFF) stakeholders to join the law enforcement authorities in their continuing crackdown on illegal fishing that destroys coral reefs and imperils the sustainability of their industry. So that is why we chose to make a petition to encourage our fellow Filipino to protect and conserve coral reefs for the benefit of our tourism and Mother Earth.

Conserving coral reefs are important and there are some of the reasons why. Coral reefs are important for many different reasons aside from supposedly containing the most diverse ecosystems on the planet. They protect coastlines from the damaging effects of wave action and tropical storms. Provide habitats and shelter for many marine organisms. And also the fishing industry depends on coral reefs because many fish spawn there and juvenile fish spend time there before making their way to the open sea.

Coral reefs are spectacular, diverse ecosystems that are home to thousands of different species. Coral reefs have been termed "the rainforests of the sea" because they support a vast abundance and diversity of different plants and animals more species than any other marine ecosystem, with more still being discovered. Coral reefs are threatened by fishing, climate change and development, and are having trouble all around the world. With sufficient effort and political will, most of the direct impacts to coral reefs can be alleviated.

          Marine Conservation Institute works to protect coral reef ecosystems so that they will be around for generations to come. We have worked to establish large marine protected areas that will protect tropical coral reefs. We have also spent years studying deep-sea corals and advocating for their protection
