Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1993. It lies in the middle of the Sulu Sea and is one of the Philippines’ oldest ecosystems.
The region contains excellent examples of a pristine reef with an incredibly high diversity of marine life. The area supports 374 species of corals — that’s almost 90 percent of all coral species in the Philippines! The area also supports 11 species of cetaceans, 11 species of sharks, and an estimated 479 species of fish.
The Nayong Pilipino Foundation supports the Department of Tourism’s campaign on sustainable tourism.
