Michael Aw And Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo Awarded For Outstanding Marine Conservation

From Site:
Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, president of the Philippine Republic and a world-leader in protecting the ocean environment, received the award in recognition of her decades of efforts to protect sharks and the ocean ecosystem as the foundation for a stable, productive and sustainable society. President Arroyo, who recently designated the whale shark as the icon for marine conservation, has made unprecedented strides to protect unique marine resources throughout South Asia’s Coral Triangle. An avid diver for 30 years, she created and expanded marine parks throughout her island nation of 90 million people, funded marine conservation projects, and hosted marine conservation symposiums in the Asia Pacific region.
