    Alexandra Cousteau is in the Philippines to help bring attention to local marine conservation issues in the country, including illegal fishing, the dwindling sardine catch, and the protection of two important biodiversity areas in the Philippines: the Tañon Strait Protected Seascape in the Visayas and the vast Benham Rise off Luzon.

    The granddaughter of legendary undersea explorer Jacques Cousteau, Alexandra is a senior adviser with international organization Oceana. Her itinerary in the Philippines includes meeting with government officials and private sector representatives to push for programs that support local fisheries and the implementation of the enforcement plan in Tañon Strait.

    And "wishing" is about all the more that'll happen. My grandfather always told me, "Wish in one hand and poo in the other. Let me know which one fills up first."

    A very cynical view Mr Wrye .....
    I am quite positive that as soon as dirty harry is finished with the drug dealers, ASG, NPA, China, corrupt officials, noisy motorbikes, stray dogs, litter louts and mini skirts (did i miss anything else?) he will get right on to that Tanon straight thing.
