Tales from the Coral Triangle



What is Tales from the Coral Triangle?

“Tales from the Coral Triangle” is a collection of short stories written by young students from Balabac, Taytay, Aborlan, and Puerto Princesa City in Palawan, Philippines. These stories are about real world issues like wildlife trade, deforestation, and illegal fishing—things that students really care about.

In their stories, they show us what kind of magic lurks in forest corners and how goodwill stands above fear. Read the book and learn why being young is no excuse to do good for the community.
