Rare featured on national television in the Philippines
Would you like to swim with a million sardines?
Swarms of sardines swim with sea turtles in the coastal town of Moalboal, a popular tourist destination in the province of Cebu in the Philippines.
Unlike in South Africa where the sardines follow a migratory path, the sardines in Moalboal gather all year round at Panagsama beach.
In this clip from Born to be Wild, an environmental documentary program on GMA News TV, Rare Philippines program implementation manager Romel Kirit explains the importance of marine protected areas and regulating tourism in sustaining the abundance of coastal fisheries in the Tañon Strait Protected Seascape.
