As the support of Philippine Tropical Forest Conservation Foundation ended in 2016, MBCFI decided to continue the project through the support of Malampaya Joint Venture Partners. Restoration and woodlot sites established in the previous years will be maintained and regularly monitored in partnership with POs created.

MBCFI assisted in the establishment of a growth chamber in Ambulong Island which was held last March 04, 2017 with the assistance of 17 SASAMAKA members. The growth chamber contains 500 wildlings of Philippine Teak and 900 native wildlings.
