Mining Threatens Plants, Animals and our Indigenous Brothers & Sisters in Palawan

Another big threat is looming over Palawan.

Online, ABS-CBN News published the article, "Palawan: RP's Last Ecological Frontier, or Mining Frontier?" describing the threat on Palawan's forests, which are hot mining spots.  These forests are also habitats containing many plant and animal species that are endemic to Palawan.  The animals shall be displaced and may become extinct.

But what most do not realize is that these forests and other mining sites are also home to indigenous tribes that have little or no outside contact.  They shall be displaced too!  Where will they go?

Here is an open letter to the President of the Philippines imploring for help.  Sign if you agree and help make a difference.... HOPEFULLY.....!
