Last April 30, the DOST-funded project entitled “Project 7: Pilot Technology Demonstration on Coral Reef Restoration in Padre Bugros, Southern Leyte” was officially turned over to the local recipients and respective partners.
Project 7 is part of a national coral research program entitled “The Filipinnovation on Coral Reef Restoration” headed by USC’s Dr. Filipina Sotto. The University drafted a sustainability program to be implemented by the local government unit, the Southern Leyte State University and a local dive resort to ensure the continuity of coral restoration in Sogod Bay, Southern Leyte.Source: Ms. Ethel Wagas
