Alaminos City Mayor Arthur Celeste is leading the rehabilitation of dying corals in the Hundred Islands National Park by completing an open sea scuba diving course.

The Pangasinan politiko, together with 15 city government employees and Alaminos police chief Benjamin Ariola, completed the open sea diving course last August 17.

Celeste said he wanted to lead the rehabilitation project himself instead of hiring private divers.

He also said that 70% of the 30,000 corals the city government planted in 2015 were destroyed by illegal fishing and irresponsible tourists.

“Para nang sementeryo sa ilalim ng tubig ang mga natumba at nangingitim na mga corals,” Celeste said.
