Ocean Defender tour: Arrival of Esperanza at Apo Island

The largest ship in the Greenpeace fleet, Esperanza, arrived today in Apo Island, home to one of the country’s oldest community-managed marine reserves, to mark the start of its three week journey from the Visayas to Manila. The ship, which is on the Philippine leg of her “Ocean Defender Tour of Southeast Asia 2013,” will tell the story of the richness and the beauty of the Philippine seas, expose destruction that causes marine degradation and sound the alarm to call for urgent government action to save the Philippine seas from crisis.
