Michael Reilly 
From Danjugan, CCC's interests in the Philippines grew but the passion, enthusiasm and determination shown in protecting coral reefs and tropical rainforest was second to none and Michael the embassy was delighted to support CCC and the work it was doing. Since then Michael has had the good fortune to dive in many different locations, including Bali, Guam and Taiwan among others but the quality and variety of the reefs in the Philippines has been unsurpassed, and shows just what a difference CCC is making. Michael is therefore proud and delighted to be a Coral Cay Patron. Michael recently left the FCO and now works for BAE Systems. Michael first became involved with Coral Cay when working in the British Embassy in the Philippines in the late 1990s. At that time CCC's principal focus was on Danjugan Island and Michael still remembers well his first visit there. A sudden and unexpected tropical shower had passed through overnight thoroughly soaking the volunteers. This was in the days before e-tickets and one girl was carefully trying to separate the soaked pages of her air ticket and dry them out so she could return home!
