Marine Protection Prize Award
MCC is one of the 3 winners of the worldwide Marine Protection Prize created by the National Geographic Society.
"Conservation doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive; often the simplest solutions offer the most effective outcomes. Giving nature a break from anthropogenic stresses is all that is needed to allow nature to do what it does best, self-restoration. As a species, we need to reassess our priorities and remove ourselves from the consumer lifestyles we have adopted and return to a more balanced approach where we give nature the respect it so desperately needs."

A Selection Of Photo Galleries From Our Patrols

Below is a Selection of galleries pieced from our regular patrols, we have 1000's of photos and plenty more video footage as we are out most nights and always during the days but its just not possible to upload and show every event or patrol, so here you will find a taste of what we do, daily and nightly in our battle to save Kep's and Cambodia's Ocean from destructive IUU fishing. It includes everything from nighttime encounters with Electric trawlers and large Vietnamese IUU boats, through to the day time offenders which are becoming less and less. As the last few years has progressed it is getting better, but the moment we begin to feel like its under control or are not vigilant there is always few illegal fishermen that decide to chance it.

We work closely with Kep and Kampot Fisheries Cantonements and maintain a close communication with National Fisheries in Phnom Phen, informing of all activities within the coastal areas we work to address IUU issues.
