There are few places in this world that we consider a paradise. And the Tubbataha Reef in Palawan is one of them.
Often dubbed as a Mecca of Philippine diving, the reef is a home to more than 600 species of fish and 360 species of corals. It produces 200 tons of seafood per square kilometer and the seeding and growth area of fish stocks. Without this paradise, fish would not have the chance to grow and repopulate in other areas.
Join Kara David in a rare glimpse of this vast playground for sea creatures, where one can play with schools of fish, swim alongside manta rays and marine turtles.
Get to know the lives of the volunteers and marine rangers who guard the area for illegal fishermen and poachers.
