What We Do at PUWAS
The Philippines Underwater Archaeology Society was established to help achieve the following goals:
Preserve and manage underwater heritage sites in the Philippines.
Search, identify and document new underwater archaeological sites.
Raise the public awareness about underwater archaeology education.
Provide accredited professional underwater and/or maritime archaeology training programs at different levels.
PUWAS is in the process of getting the support and cooperation of the National Museum of the Philippines and the Archaeological Studies Program at University of the Philippines, Diliman campus.
A long term partnership agreement with the Nautical Archaeology Society in the UK (NAS) is also being negotiated.
