Establishing and Monitoring Coral and Giant Clam Gardens

Residents in Taytay, Palawan are protecting corals and the vulnerable giant clams through the Coral and Giant Clam Gardening project. This initiative was designed to seamlessly combine reef restoration and sustainable financing through ecotourism. Since 2015, this nature-based initiative has changed the way local communities look at managing marine protected areas. This manual shows how reef restoration, so important for fishing communities, can be replicated in the country.
