Restoring Balance

We’re on a mission to restore the delicate equilibrium between human needs and our precious natural resources.  Our approach facilitates essential conversations, exploring the dire consequences of inaction.  By enabling communities to take ownership of their environment, we initiate a collective rise to protect and nurture what’s rightfully ‘ours’.

Pelagic Rising Habitats are community owned and community managed initiatives.

Integration and Collaboration

With a deep focus on connection and restoration, we collaborate with local communities to co-design innovative models that revitalize and protect their surroundings.  Our vision goes beyond mere conservation; we aim to create sustainable hubs where communities not only preserve but also thrive, sustainably utilising their natural resources.

Our Story

& How it began

Pelagic Wake Global began with a vision to empower local communities in conservation management practices; whilst empowering tourism operators to adopt a more sustainable approach.  Originating as a coral restoration and education non-profit company in the Philippines, our work was galvanized by the challenges posed during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The inability to host tourists led us to direct our attention towards preserving and supporting our natural resources with members of the community.

Our unique ability to connect diverse stakeholders and develop cross-sectoral initiatives proved to be a powerful strategy for achieving meaningful impact in conservation and disaster relief.  The blueprint for cross–sectoral initiatives with conservation as the primary objective was born, and its success in the Philippines became the springboard for further initiatives.  In response to natural disasters and the pandemic, Pelagic seamlessly transitioned into a humanitarian effort, embodying our commitment to supporting and empowering local communities.
