Travelogue – The PHILIPPINES – The Apex of the Coral Triangle

January 20, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

- Free

The Philippines is comprised of 7,107 islands.  Lynn Funkhouser (Women Divers Hall of Fame) will be showcasing Anilao and Puerto Galera, considered to be the “Center of the Center of Marine Diversity.”  Then you will travel to Dumaguete to learn about her interview with Dr. Angel Alcala, who is responsible for over 400 marine protected areas, and to dive Apo Island and Dumaguete.  Then it’s on to Oslob to dive with whale sharks.  The final stop is Malapascua, the only known area where graceful oceanic thresher sharks come up to 90 ft. to be cleaned every morning.  Lynn continues to amaze us with astounding, award-winning photographs from her dives.
