*Tubbataha Reef in the Philippines is world-renowned for its diverse ecosystems. Adjudged one of the top dive sites in the world, Tubbataha is also a bird sanctuary located in the Sulu Sea, about 12 hours by boat from Puerto Princesa City, Palawan. Specifically the tip of the South Atoll supports a huge number of masked red-foot boobies, terns, and frigate birds resting during their annual migrations. Declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in December 1993, the site that showcases natural heritage is under protective management by the Philippine Department of National Defense and under technical supervision by the Palawan Council for Sustainable Development and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
