Dugong eco-bag in Philippines

Dugong_Logo LC

It’s been almost ten years since we launched the bag for life in Palau, and we thought that it would be great to conduct a similar initiative in the Philippines.  As part of the social marketing component of our dugong conservation work, we have designed and distributed hundreds of canvas eco-bags with our project  slogan: ‘And dugong ay buhay’ or ‘The dugong is life’.  We hope that this activity will not only raise local awareness of the importance of dugongs for local communities, but will also reduce plastic bag waste and its damage to coastal habitats.
