YPDR’s new dive compressor.

Thank you to our long term friends and supporters the Enrique Zobel Foundation, YPDR.org is now the only facility on Bantayan Island with a dive compressor. This equipment will allow us to take our marine restoration programme to the next level! In partnership with University of San Carlos’ marine biology division and world famous environmental attorney Tony Oposa, we will be hosting scientific research groups and educational seminars, and with support from groups like the Philippine Business for Social Progress we will be deploying and monitoring many more marine domes. To date on Bantayan YPDR.org has deployed 590 of our limestone-rich marine domes with a further 80 ready to go. Also known as fish condos, these domes are artificial reefs and encourage the growth of coral and also protect smaller marine creatures.
