Founded in 2006, the Save Palawan Seas Foundation (SPSF) is a non-profit organization that aims to protect and nourish natural resources by supporting, educating, and creating workable, profitable, and environmentally sustainable livelihood alternatives for coastal communities in Palawan, Philippines.
Hailed as the Philippines’ Last Frontier, Palawan is known for its virgin forests, beautiful beaches, rich marine life, and flora and fauna that can be found nowhere else on earth. SPSF focuses its initiatives to preserve and rehabilitate this natural haven that was once a victim of man-made destruction caused by harmful and illegal practices of resource extraction.
SPSF accomplishes its mission in partnership with local government units, non-government organizations, and private individuals who share in the foundation’s vision.
