These modules are made up of old coral rubbles and cement and will encourage coral growth so the reef can recover quickly. The Marine Protected Area (MPA) was destroyed by Typhoon Pablo in December 2012. An increase in extreme weather events is one of the predicted effects of climate change. Greenpeace is in Apo island as part of its Philippine leg of the “Ocean Defenders Tour of South East Asia".Locations:Apo Island-Apo Island Marine Reserve-Dauin-Negros Oriental-Philippines-Southeast AsiaDate:11 Jul, 2013Credit:© Steve De Neef / GreenpeaceMaximum size:3000px X 2000pxKeywords:Actions and protests-Boats-Corals-Day-Defending Our Oceans (campaign title)-Diving-Diving actions-Greenpeace activists-KWCI (GPI)-Marine protected areas-Marine Reserves (campaign title)-Oceans (campaign title)-Oceans (topography)-Outdoors-People-Reefs-Underwater shotsShoot:MY Esperanza in the PhilippinesThe Greenpeace ship MY Esperanza is in the Philippines for a three week journey starting in the Visayas and ending in Manila.
