Divers unite to combat COT infestation in Sarangani Bay

GLAN, Sarangani (May 30, 2022) - Some 50 volunteer scuba and free divers from the different provincial and local government agencies, and non-government organizations join in the massive COT collection on May 27 at Coco Beach Resort, Gumasa to help counter the COT infestation in Sarangani Bay. Before going 20-30 feet underwater, divers were given instructions on what should be and what should not be done in retrieving COTs from the coral bed in order to avoid the risks of mishandling them. The massive COT Collection is one of the highlights of this year’s Sarbay Festival anchored on the theme #WakeUpSarbay after its two-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
