    Ocean Adventure is a strong advocate of marine conservation and environmental protection.

    Everybody has a role to play, especially during the rainy season when trash from inner-bay communities is carried into our shores. We work from dawn to dark pulling trash from the water, sometimes by the boatload. Every day resident aquarists take water samples from different ...

  • 2nd Philippine Marine Mammal Stranding Network National Symposium

    I spent the past week in Subic Bay at a conference about Marine Mammal Stranding (http://www.oceanadventure.com.ph/symposiums-and-workshops/philippine-marine-mammal-stranding-network-national-symposium/). In the Philippines most strandings of dolphins, whales, dugongs…etc. are caused by toxins in the water, blast fishing, or entanglement. At the conference we talked about best practices for release, rehabilitation, and euthanasia of these animals and the decision making process involved in these 3 options. It was also a great opportunity to meet representatives from throughout the Philippine ...

  • Mermaids Help Save Dolphins

    Mermaids and dolphins love each other. It is a statement proven when I went to participate at Project MOM: Mermaids On a Mission, during Mother's Day weekend in Subic. As a Mermaid Swim Coach, this is a very meaningful activity for me, because not only did I swim with dolphins, but together with fellow mermaids, helped raise funds for the sick, wounded and stranding marine mammals.

    It was of great pleasure for us to have this fund-raising event for our chosen charity, the PHILIPPINE MARINE MAMMAL STRANDING NETWORK based at OCEAN ADVENTURE, in the beautiful Camayan Wharf, Zambales. PMMSN ...
