My World#38 Sculpture In Lucap, Alaminos, Pangasinan

This is the sculpture of a diver planting artificial corals in Hundred Islands National Park, Alaminos, Pangasinan. The sculpture stands at Barangay Lucap, Alaminos, Pangasinan, the jump-off point going to the national park.

Fishing was the main means of livelihood in the area but the indiscriminate use of cyanide and bombs took a toll on the corals of the national park. Subsequently, fish and other marine life dwindled affecting the lives of the people in the area. The government in partnership with the local people, private organizations and individuals undertook the rehabilitation of the Hundred Islands' marine life.

This sculpture recognizes the efforts of everybody who were involved in the project and also, it is a reminder that marine life should be taken care of properly for sustainability. Nowadays, continuing efforts are still undergoing. Local people are now more involved in promoting the national park's beauty through tourism which also helps in augmenting their income.
