THE TRINITY: Protecting and Sustaining Life right at the heart of Davao Gulf

The Trinity project is a 3-fold approach to rebuilding a costal ecosystem that will be carried out along 4km of Tagum City’s coastline, Davao del Norte. The Trinity means the planting of Mangroves to a 20 hectare, planting and growing of seagrass meadow equivalet to 80 hectares, and, creating a fringing artificial coral reef environment that will cover an area of almost 30,000 square meters.

The total area rehabilitated will be around 120 hectares of intertidal and subtidal zones, which will extend from the High Tide Mark to a maximum depth of 5m.

The initial boundaries will reach from the southern side of the Madaum River mouth down to the northern side of Libuganon River.
