Robert ‘Bobbit’ Suntay

Robert Suntay is President of the SEA-VIP Institute, a foundation that uses Science, Education, and Advocacy programs to protect the marine biodiversity resources in the Verde Island Passage. He is a member of various marine conservation organization boards including: WWF (Philippines), Studio H20, and the Network of Underwater Digital Imagers (NUDI).

Robert believes he was a fish in his previous life – which is why he spends most of his time underwater – either free diving and/or scuba diving both professionally and for recreational purposes. He is an underwater videographer, and he uses his films to help people appreciate the amazing beauty, crucial importance, and delicate fragility of our wonderful underwater world.
