About Us

BlueWild EcoVentures was established by Blue Alliance International to harness tourism as a sustainable means of supporting Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) for the long term.

In the North Mindoro we work with Blue Alliance Philippines, the official MPA management partner of the regions’ local government units.

Our approach is founded on these pillars:

• Through our resort and dive operator partners we inspire travellers to discover sustainable marine travel destinations and experiences that make a positive impact.

• By encouraging travellers to learn more about coral reefs and the threats they face, and by garnering their support, we work to ensure their long-term survival.

• By developing social enterprises that financially support effective marine conservation efforts, we believe that business can be a force for good. 

• By gathering a community who share our dedication to ocean and reef protection, we are committed to creating a powerful collective that makes a meaningful difference.
