In collaboration with the Shangri-La Mactan Resort and Spa, the Naval Forces Central’s Civil Military Operation Unit – Central (CMOU-C) took part in the “Scubasurero” coastal and undersea clean-up activity.
On November 18, 2021, the exercise was undertaken in collaboration with the resort’s corporate staff as part of a scheduled undersea clean-up effort at the resort’s fish sanctuary and protected coral reef in Punta Engaño, Lapu-Lapu City.
Personnel from the Ocean Ripple, a non-profit marine conservation organization that works to rescue our oceans and advocates for the protection of marine ecosystems and the restoration of sustainable fisheries to limit human effect on the ecosystem, joined the Shangri-La Resort’s team. Similarly, the clean-up aids in the environmental battle to conserve the sea and marine life.
Naval Special Operations Unit 5 (NAVSOU-5) and CMOU-C personnel took part in the coastal and undersea clean-up. This is part of the Command’s environmental advocacy program aimed at preventing pollution in our oceans, coasts, and communities.
