Coastal Resources and Fisheries Conservation Project
The Coastal Resources and Fisheries Conservation Project (CRFC) has completed preparatory and start-up activities to document best practices in coastal tourism and develop communications materials for environment-friendly technologies Target sites are coastal tourism areas of Batangas, El Nido, Cebu, Bohol and Tawi-Tawi province.Tawi-Tawi province is a new site for WWF-Philippines. Since time immemorial, it has remained in the backwater in terms of conservation and development initiatives in the country. The province harbors important ecosystems of coral reefs, mangroves and seagrasses and serves as an important corridor between the Sulu and the Sulawesi seas. In 2004, WWF-Philippines launched a coastal resource management program in three towns - Languyan, Sitangkai and Mapun - that will focus on MPA establishment, enforcement, and capacity-building. The three-year CRFC project is funded by USAID through WWF-US.
