World Heritage Site

Tubbataha Reef is an atoll coral reef in the Sulu
Sea that belongs to the Philippines. It is a marine sanctuary protected
as Tubbataha Reef National Marine Park. The reef is composed of two
atolls, North and South Reefs. Each reef has a single small islet that
protrudes from the water. The atolls are separated by a deep channel 8
kilometers wide. Over one thousand species, including many that are
endangered, can be found at on the reef. These include manta rays,
lionfish, tortoises, clownfish and sharks.

Vivid corals cover more than two-thirds of the area and the waters
around the reef are places of refuge for numerous marine lives. The
seemingly diverse ecosystem of this sanctuary rivals the Great Barrier Reef - having 300 coral species and 400 fish species.

I have a particular fondness for the Philippines and would really like
to see Tubbataha get into the top. But that aside, Tubbataha is a
very important ecosystem that contains so many species.

I think this is a worthy goal and I know that the Philippines conservation effort could certainly use all the help it can get.

I can actually say that I've been there and it is wothy
to be listed as one of the New7Wndrs!
Whale Shark, Manta Rays, Hammerhead, Marble Ray, Eagle Ray, White Tip & Black Tip Sharks, Moray Eels, Schools of Tons of Fish, Turtles the size of Coffee Tables peacefully munching away can all be seen in a day.

Please, please, please everyone, go click on this link and vote for
Tubbataha. You can nominate and vote for other sites around the world
as well but I would be our best bud for life if you vote for Tubbataha.

Thanks folks.
