Protest Against Nickelodeon's Underwater Theme Park in PalawanThursday, January 12, 2017
What?, there's a plan to construct an underwater theme park in the beautiful island of Palawan? Yes, there is. It was on the news last night.
Even before we saw the news on TV last night, the kids told me that there will be a Nickelodeon theme park under the sea in Palawan. They are excited about it, actually. It's normal, they're just kids anyway. They are not aware yet on the disadvantages of constructing a theme park 20 feet below sea level
According to the news, environmentalist groups in Palawan are protesting on the plan to construct a 400-hectare underwater theme park and resort in Palawan which is known as the Philippines' "last ecological frontier". Environment Secretary Gina Lopez also said that she won't allow this to happen because it will definitely destroy the coral reefs.
This morning, I signed an online petition spearheaded by www.bataris.org.ph. This is the reason why I am sharing this to you. I am inviting everyone to sign the petition, too for us to join hands in protecting the environment. Let's stop the people who wants to make money at the expense of nature in pursuing there plans.
