Ranked as one of the world's top 200 sites for the diversity of species which live beneath its waves, the Sulu-Sulawesi Sea is home to turtles, marine mammals, vast expanses of coral and nearly 2000 species of fish.

But, as the most important spawning ground in the Asia-Pacific region for fish, the Sulu-Sulawesi also provides a livelihood for fishing communities in Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines. Earth Report investigates how a unique marine environment is standing up to the pressures from the people living on its shores.
