Kapit Sisid and SEA Institute-VIP with our first class of Freedivers for Marine Conservation in Bgy. San Teodoro, Mabini, Batangas. Our first batch of residents, fishermen and boatmen learned safe and effective freediving skills with marine conservation knowledge to help preserve the coral reefs of the Verde Island Passage – the center of the center of marine biodiversity.
Thanks to Tara Abrina and Carlo Navarro – our freedive gurus and marine biology expert. Thanks to our awesome volunteers, Chiara Benitez and Sef Alba Carandang! Thank you to SEA-VIP’s President, Bobbit (Robert Suntay), for planting the seeds and providing the use of Kapit Balai.
SEA Institute – VIP and Kapit Sisid hope to expand this exciting program to other barangays in the Verde Island Passage. You can support this effort through a generous donation on our crowdfunding site at PassItForward.com.
