Partnerships for the Coral Triangle

Our work in the Coral Triangle is a collaborative effort.

WWF’s partners range from the communities and NGOs at our field sites to major multilateral agencies such as the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF), governments and businesses, which are helping us to conserve the marine treasures and resources of the Coral Triangle.

A true private-public partnership

In the face of large-scale commercial fishing and dwindling fish stocks in the Coral Triangle, the handline tuna fishermen of Lagonoy Gulf and Mindoro Strait in the Philippines can still dream of a better life, thanks to institutionalized support for their traditional ways with help from a public- private partnership facilitated by WWF and funded by Bell/Coop and Seafresh.

By training fishers and traders on proper tuna handling and processing, this market-driven approach to fisheries management, which includes approximately 6,000 tuna fishers, has improved fishers’ income by encouraging them to focus on the quality of fish catch, allowing them to stay in step with global market demands while cooperating and actively participating as co-managers in the conservation and management of resources for long-term sustainability.
