Press Release:

Did you know that the center of the center of the world’s marine shorefish biodiversity is in the Philippines?

Located in the heart of the Coral Triangle, the epicenter of the world’s marine fish and coral biodiversity, the Philippines’ Verde Island Passage is regarded as the center of the center of the world’s marine shorefish biodiversity.  It provides critical ecosystem services to support the livelihoods and food security over seven million people through livelihoods and food security.

But this way of life is threatened by climate change; the impacts of which affect not only the region’s fragile ecosystems and species, but also the communities that rely on fishing and tourism for their livelihoods, and mangroves for coastal protection from storms.

The Consular Corps of the Philippines, the professional organization of career and honorary consuls for the Philippines, in an effort to protect and promote the Verde Island Passage’s ecological sustainability and biodiversity, planted 30,000 mangrove seedlings in Baco, Oriental Mindoro in 2011. This year, the Consular Corps furthers its Verde Island Passage’s protection efforts by committing to rehabilitate 20 hectares of mangrove forests in Calatagan, Batangas.

This is the power, the impetus behind the RUN FOR THE MANGROVES fun run on 19 October 2013, 4:30AM, at the Bonifacio Global City.

In behalf of the Consular Corps of the Philippines, we earnestly seek your kind support by helping us get the word out to your circle of runner-friends and blog followers.  The full details of the fun run are in the attached project brief and also posted at or here:

Hope to see you there! Happy running! 🙂
