Hundred Island National Park and Marine Sanctuary News
From textbooks to storybooks, I read about the Philippines Hundred Islands. As a kid, I couldn't imagine how and what dozens of islands would look like. I only heard how beautiful the marine life is and how many islands there are that you won't be able to see all in just a day. Oh boy, how true the stories were! When Ryk and I went there, it was truly a wonderful place!
Scuba diving is no longer a mere leisure activity at the Hundred Islands National Park (HINP) here as "scubasureros" also do it to maintain the cleanliness of the waters of Pangasinan's famous tourism site.
Keeping the waters of HINP pristine is a priority, since the national park attracts both local and foreign tourists with its unique characteristics.

During our last two visits, however, we started noticing several improvements and were able to experience more of the beauty that made the Hundred Islands National Park a popular destination decades ago.
Marine conservationists are in a race to save "Tala," hoping it would become the first stranded dolphin to survive in this part of the country.

The 1.8-meter rough-toothed dolphin was found on Bolo beach on July 2 and was taken by the Alaminos City tourism staff to the station where it underwent treatment and rehabilitation.
But Lemnuel Aragones, president of the P ...
With bated breath, researchers from the University of the Philippines Marine Science Institute (UPMSI) in Bolinao town waited for the birth of unusual "babies" in the dark and watery delivery room.
Hours later, a beautiful hue of orange filled Magsaysay reef as pregnant corals expelled millions of gametes (sperm and eggs cells) into the ocean, which divers caught and sealed inside canisters before transferring them to a "nursery."
Since early May, researchers have been collecting gametes that would develop into larvae, or fertilized coral eggs, to replenish the coral reefs of the Hundred ...
