screen-shot-2017-01-04-at-22-11-41The 20th issue of the SEVENSEAS travel and marin conservation magazine, published January 1, features the LT&C-Example Apo Island Marine Reserves, Philippines (see pp 56-59). The example, authorised by Rockhopper penguin Iris Carla de Jesus, describes the convincing case of a small marine protected area (MPA) with no fishing zones and its potential to serve as blue print for other MPAs in the biodiversity hotspot of the “Coral Triangle”.

Iris Carla de Jesus served LT&C last year as intern and has been involved in a number of our activities. She is presently in the Philippines to further study the Apo island example before finishing her master thesis on this topic.
