BALYENA.ORG is a non-profit, research and conservation-focused organization. We monitor the humpback whale population in the Babuyan Marine Corridor, the only known breeding ground of these beautiful yet vulnerable species in the Philippines
We’ve been monitoring them since 2000, making ours the longest-running cetacean research project in the country. The data we collect has contributed significantly to our understanding of humpbacks and how they are affected by threats like environmental degradation, unregulated coastal development, and increasing boat traffic.
Every purchase of our “Humpbacks of the Babuyan Marine Corridor” t-shirt will help us continue our annual research survey and educational outreach activities along schools in the coastal communities on the Babuyan Islands.
