Upon the request of Coast Guard District Palawan (CGD-PAL), thirty of its personnel are currently undergoing training to prepare them for assignment to the Tubbataha Reefs. The training puts a stress on marine conservation because it is the focus of their duties in the Park. The training also includes law enforcement protocols that apply to the Park. Interpersonal skills development is another topic that is discussed because being isolated in Tubbataha for two months with strangers requires good relational abilities.

CGD-Palawan, Pilipinas Shell foundation, Inc. (PSFI), and the Tubbataha Management Office (TMO) provided counterpart funds to provide this capacity development opportunity for future marine park rangers in Tubbataha.

Palawan Coast Guard District Deputy Commander, Captain Rafael Jackson Bellen,  opens the 16th Comprehensive Training for Marine Park Rangers on 31 May 2016.
