About Us

Marine Wildlife Watch of the Philippines

Marine Wildlife Watch of the Philippines’ (MWWP) began as a Facebook page in December 2009. It was primarily designed to be an outlet for knowledge and information on marine wildlife in the Philippines, particularly the mysterious and interesting marine animals like dolphins, whales, dugong, marine turtles, sharks, and rays. The Facebook page served as an information hub that contained news, videos, pictures, and other information related to marine wildlife in the Philippines.

In a span of two years, the Facebook page gained considerable support from its followers. Thus, MWWP was registered under the name Marine Wild Fauna Watch of the Philippines, a non-profit, non-stock, conservation organization under the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on September 13, 2010.

Since then, MWWP has been involved in various projects and activities that aim for a better appreciation of the marine environment, its ecological processes, and how it affects us all in the local context.

MWWP continues to use Facebook as the main portal for public education. With this, we invite you to be part of our Facebook network. Let us share our knowledge and passion for marine conservation on MWWP’s Facebook page.
