Tañon Strait Initiative
The Tañon Strait straddling the islands of Negros and Cebu has been regarded as an important migration corridor for whales, dolphins and other marine mammals. It is a favored destination for whale-watchers, conservationists and wildlife enthusiasts. However, the ecology of the Tañon Strait and the marine species that it hosts are poorly understood and threatened. With WWF-US support, WWF-Philippines undertook cetacean surveys to establish baseline data on cetacean populations and species. WWF-Philippines aims to characterize the strait and understand migration patterns of species to develop conservation action plans in the Tañon Strait.
