PRRCFI is the organization behind Danjugan Island, a wildlife sanctuary with a renowned environmental education program - and Wala Usik, a local movement for circular economy. PRRCFI was established in 1994 by a group of divers who first fell in love with a little island called Danjugan in 1974. In the 1980s a period of destructive and unsustainable fishing seriously harmed the island’s reefs. After a long period of campaigning, the ownership of Danjugan Island was transferred to PRRCFI, and now is the center of a marine reserve, with 3 sanctuaries (no-take zones). PRRCFI has since established several environmental programs that focus on biodiversity conservation, nature tourism, science and research, environmental education, solid waste management and zero-waste initiatives.
