A groupie in the making was photobombed by our beloved green sea-turtles. It happened within the shallow waters of Apo Island.

The photo below shows that our efforts in maintaining the marine sanctuary has been very efficient for our resident photobombers. It is our mission with the help of the community within APO Island to ensure that the marine sanctuary will continue to be a safe home for these endangered green sea turtles .

Liberty’s Lodge, through the efforts lead by Madam Liberty Rhodes of Apo Island and the partner organizations like Project Aware and Green Finns ensure, that these green sea-turtles are safe here in our sanctuary.

At present, the island is home to over 650 documented species of fish and estimated to have over 400 species of corals. Most of the Philippines’ 450 species of coral can be found here, from tiny bubble corals to huge gorgonian sea fans and brain corals. Visitors and tourists pay a fee to enter Apo Island and to snorkel or dive in the marine sanctuary there, these fees are used to keep the sanctuary clean and in good condition.

Come visit us in Apo Island and see these green sea-turtles for yourself. Who knows, you might be the next to be photobombed.
