Coral transplant

Volunteer scuba divers conduct a ‘coral transplant’ at the Tuka Marine Park and Beach Resort, one of the top beaches and diving tourist attractions in the Soccsksargen region. It involves collecting loose coral fragments due to waves or human activity and replanting them to regrow into new colonies, thus enriching aquatic life. Led by the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office of Sarangani and Municipal ENRO of Kiamba, the two-week initiative successfully transplanted some 1,400 fragments of branching corals 15 feet underwater. Situated at a secluded cove in Sarangani Bay in Kiamba town, the marine sanctuary takes pride in its powdery white sand, crystalline water, and abundant fish species, which make it ideal for snorkeling.
