Starfishes

These beautiful sea creatures are vibrant at their most natural homes, the sea. They come in different colors and sizes and almost all the beaches in the Philippines is home to them. Unfortunately, the moment a tourist sees these creatures resting on the sands or just slowly gliding through the water, tourists instantly pick them up and most often than not, covet them and bring them home. Just a few minutes out of the water, these star fishes lose their luster, they get dehydrated and die and eventually, the tourist just drops them dead into the waters again.

What’s amazing with the starfishes is that when they land on their backs for one reason or another, they can maneuver their bodies to be right side up again. View these starfishes during the many seascape adventures brought by the Palawan Experience Tours of The Legend Palawan.
