Tubbataha is considered to be one of the most spectacular diving areas in the world and is a breeding ground for many species of fish in the Philippines.

More than 600 fish species and half of all known coral species are found there. Seabirds also have important breeding grounds on the tiny islands. This refuge has to be constantly defended. Like a stranded space ship, a small white capsule on stilts stands in the Philippine waters of the Sulu Sea – the world’s most remote ranger station. Located 93 miles from the mainland, nine men watch over one of the reefs having the largest number of species, the Tubbataha Atoll. Because of their isolation, sharks are usually their only visitors. Only the head of national parks, Angelique Songco, drops in for an inspection now and then.
