MANILA, Philippines -- The World Wide Fund for Nature-Philippines says it may be better to leave the grounded USS Guardian at the Tubbataha Reef.

WWF-Philippines President Lory Tan, who is also a member of the Tubbataha Management Board, says a decision not to remove the ship may prevent further damage to the marine sanctuary.

Tan adds removing the ship requires clinical precision and substantial costs to ensure the protection of the Tubbataha Reef.
