Amlan Marine Sanctuaries Takot Diot and Tandayag Established to Protect Coral reef.
I am sharing with you some photos taken during the round 2 community/ participatory biophysical monitoring of two Amlan MPAs in March 2012. Mr. Job D. Tagle, MENRO of Amlan, led the monitoring team--- from the review of monitoring protocols, to actual data gathering and analysis.

We plan to hold another session perhaps in the last quarter of this year to capacitate the monitoring team to compare two dat ...

1-Stickers in Tricycles: We put stickers in the tricycles because most people of Amlan use tricycles as their most common or popular public transport within the municipality. People of all ages, male or female, would ride daily in a tricycle to reach their destinations. Wives would go to the market daily to buy fish and vegetables and other needs of the family.
