Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park (Ron Van Oers / UNESCO)

Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park, known for its high diversity of marine life, is being featured as one of the main attractions at the ongoing United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) photo exhibition at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, France from October 7-30, 2020.

Entitled “Protecting UNESCO’s Marine World Heritage through scientific research”, the photo exhibition was prepared in collaboration with the Monaco Explorations Campaign, a partnership agreement between the Paris-based UN agency, through its World Heritage Marine Programme, and the Principality of Monaco.

The photo exhibit features photographs taken in 2016 by the Monaco Explorations during a scientific exploration in UNESCO World Heritage marine sites, which includes the Philippines’ Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park.

Tubbataha Reefs is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in the center of the Sulu Sea and covers the Tubbataha and Jessie Beazley Reefs.

It is home to a great diversity of marine life, including whales, dolphins, sharks, turtles, and Napoleon wrasse.
