Surreal. Magical. Odd. Those three words immediately jumped to mind when I saw my very first seahorse in the wild.

Our relief efforts continue in the devastated communities in Panay, Bantayan, and Danajon Bank where no other external help is available. To date we've reached eleven communities, delivering emergency packs and other assistance to 1,600 households. This past week we delivered rice, canned fish and drinking water to four communities in Panay (ZSL mangrove conservation project sites) that lost 75% - 100% of their homes.
Here are some images taken during a two-day relief operation to Bantayan and Hilantagaan Island in Cebu. All photos taken by Steve de Neef.
