Marine Protection Prize Award
MCC is one of the 3 winners of the worldwide Marine Protection Prize created by the National Geographic Society.
"Conservation doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive; often the simplest solutions offer the most effective outcomes. Giving nature a break from anthropogenic stresses is all that is needed to allow nature to do what it does best, self-restoration. As a species, we need to reassess our priorities and remove ourselves from the consumer lifestyles we have adopted and return to a more balanced approach where we give nature the respect it so desperately needs."

Our First Patrol to Combat the Illegal Seahorse Trawlers 2008

This Selection of Photos of what spurred MCC into direct action back in 2008. After watching the local Seahorse breeding areas that we were researching being decimated by Illegal Vietnamese Seahorse trawlers we took action to stop them. From that moment on together with the local community we did our best day and night to deter and stop illegal activities within the newly created conservation areas around Koh Koun and Koh Rong Samloem.
