A scientist showing the polluted water samples from Manila bay. Plenty of planktons in the bay were found but they are not as big compared to plankton in non-polluted waters. Greenpeace together with UP MSI conducts a scientific demonstration on Manila Bay pollutants as part of the Ocean Defender tour. The Greenpeace ship, M/Y Esperanza is in the Philippines for the “Ocean Defender Tour of Southeast Asia 2013.” The tour aims to 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.
