Chapter 2: Apo Island

What happens when a community bands together to save its resources?


While the idea of a no-fish zone was initially met with resistance, Apo Island has become a lauded example of what can happen if a community bands together to save its resources; a message to surrounding communities that respecting marine life means respecting the people living alongside it.

GRID Expedition II is made possible with the help of Power Mac Center, Sony Philippines, Boreas Philippines, LifeProof, Tripologie, Belkin, Henry's Professional, and Florentina Homes Coco Grove Beach Resort.
