What can you buy with one US minesweeper? Last week, businessman Donald Trump Jr. lashed out at the US Navy for choosing to cut up the $277 million  USS Guardian instead of salvaging the ship after it ran aground in Tubbataha Reef in Palawan.

WWF-Philippines believes it would be best to just leave the ship in Tubbataha instead of salvaging it.
