The MPA database started out as a project to document the management of marine protected areas in the Visayas region. Its main activity was to document and record the management status of local and nationally managed MPAs. A rating system was utilized by CCEF so that MPA management committees are guided in improving the management of these sites. With a recent funding from the UNICO Conservation Foundation, the important work of supporting hundreds of MPAs scattered mainly in Visayas is continued.
