The Philippines is an epicenter for marine biodiversity, with more than five million fishers relying on fish and fishery products as a source of food and income. Created by a team of National Geographic explorers, Grandpa’s Reef is an underwater virtual reality experience that aims to inspire the next generation of ocean advocates. The experience is being distributed as part of an educational campaign for middle and high schools in the Philippines. For updates on the project, follow our expedition on National Geographic Open Explorer.
