The Tanon Strait lies between the Philippine islands of Negros and Cebus and is a playground for whales, dolphins and rare marine plants. Many locals work to protect the area's abundance of nature. Still, the strait's biodiversity is under threat, partly due to illegal fishing. Lack of money to pay for comprehensive monitoring of the protected area is a major problem. BIOFIN, a global partnership addressing the challenges in financing biodiversity protection schemes, is trying to help.
