Winner

The money will be spent on buying additional safety and support equipment for the Bantay Dagat of the Town of Mariveles. Weekly, they are aware and has acted upon illegal dynamite and sodium fishing in the area. Its a small battle that has large effects. It will benefit sustainability of the Manila common fishing grounds, enable continuous livelihood of micro scale fishermen and keep these vanguards of the sea ecology safe during their patrols. While on patrol, i have obsorved they dont have life jackets, lights at night, megaphones, and their bought speed is too slow to act.
