Professors Dr. Benjamin J. Gonzales and Dr. Roger G. Dolorosa co-authored a manual entitled "ESTABLISHING AND MONITORING CORAL AND GIANT CLAM GARDENS". The manual was prepared by the Coastal and Marine Resources Management in the Coral Triangle–Southeast Asia (TA 7813-REG), a regional technical assistance project funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF), in close coordination with the Western Philippines University-Puerto Princesa Campus. The project works with communities and local leaders to help them better manage their resources, become better prepared to face climate change effects, and adopt environment-friendly and sustainable livelihood options. The project also aims to address natural resource degradation, poverty within coastal communities, and weakness in coastal and marine resources management policy implementation.


The 6-module manual is a ready reference for environmental workers. Specifically, it gives instructions on coral reef restoration, marine stock enhancement, giant clam translocation, giant clam gardening, and coral gardening.
