Apo Reef Natural Park  contains the  largest contiguous reef system  in the  Philippines . There are two small islands in the system, one is inhabited and one where a group of  rangers  live. They patrol the Natural Park from illegal fishing activities and control the tourism numbers. The ranges with the assistance of the Large Marine Vertebrates Research Institute Philippines, have started undergoing an assessment of the marine megafauna including  sharks ,  rays  and  turtles . The research involves deploying a remote camera system and leaving it to record for a set amount of time at different depths around the reef to assess the  abundance  and  biodiversity  of this incredibly rich place.  Work undertaken in collaboration with the  Large Marine Vertebrates Research Institute Philippines .
