Divers from the Provincial Government of Bohol (PGBh) thru the Bohol Provincial Environment Management Office (BPEMO) assisted by Amun Ini Resort and Spa personnel conducted regular monitoring and cleaning of the juvenile giant clams in the temporary holding area located in Candabong, Anda, Bohol. There are more than 1,700 juvenile Giant Clams (Tridacna gigas) at the temporary holding area at Amun Ini Resort and Spa in Candabong, Anda, Bohol. These Giant Clams will be dispersed to the well-managed MPAs throughout the province. Giant Clams are essential players in coral reef ecosystems. However, most species are in danger of local extinction. This is due to overharvesting and habitat destruction. To alleviate the decline in giant clam populations, the Provincial Government of Bohol through the Bohol Environment Management Office initiated restocking efforts all over the province to help revive the dwindling population of the giant clams and help in the restoration of our coastal ecosystem.
