I was so glad that my participation in the petition was heard and Viacom (the owners of Nickelodeon) listened. Palawan, the most beautiful island in the world, was spared! Cheers to Dora the Explorer, the Chipmunks, Spongebob and the rest of the Nick gang!
It is shocking to learn from the news that a group of businessmen as well as the government of Palawan has plans of putting-up a Nickelodeon-designed underwater theme park. This indeed is very disturbing.
These builders of artificial theme parks must be made to realize that Palawan itself is one big and breathing park. A park built by no one but nature itself. A natural park where people can thrillingly commune with nature.
Palawan in so many times has been voted as the best island in the world. All human beings who has been to this heavenly place dubbed as “the last frontier” can attest that this island is one of a kind. The environment is serene, the air is fresh, the waters are crystal clear and the wildlife is healthy.
An underwater theme park is the last thing that Palawan needs. Owners of Nickelodeon obviously has not gone diving or snorkeling the beautiful waters of Palawan. They have yet to know the richness of the marine wildlife found in that beautiful island. Thus, there is no underwater feature of Palawan that is needed to be enhanced. The clearness of the water and the vastness of marine wildlife in itself is one blissful natural theme park already.
I obviously disagree and would not want the construction of an underwater theme park in Palawan. This opted me to sign-up to the “No Nickelodeon’s Underwater Theme Park in Palawan” petition/campaign. And let me ask all those who stumbled upon this post to join me by signing up at:
