Tubbataha Reef National Marine Park, Palawan

Tubbataha Reef was proclaimed as a National Marine Park through Proclamation No. 306 on August 11, 1998.

In 1994, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) declared the Tubbataha Reef Marine Park as one of the World Heritage Sites.

The area is under the protective management of the Department of National Defense and under the technical supervision of the Palawan Council for Sustainable Development (PCSD) and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

The Tubbataha Reef is composed of two large shallow reef platforms which are named North and South Reef of Islets, enclosing a sandy lagoon. Most of the park area is submerged with only a few permanent emergent sandy islands.
