Coron Island

Coron Island or Calis as the Tagbanuas called it, is the third largest island among the Calamianes group Islands. Coron is a part of the ancestral domain of the Tagbanuas. Meaning, some of the places here in Coron are exclusive and are not open for the public. The Government of the Philippines gave the right to them due to these following reasons: Many Tagbanuas spend their lives protecting and maintaining the beauty of the island, and this Island serves as the burial place of their loved ones. Due to this ancestral right, Tagbanuas are very cautious when it comes in allowing tourists to enter certain places. Coron is one of the best tourist attractions here at the Philippines. Along the Island, you can find white sand beaches, lagoons, and many more attractions. These include Kayangan lake, Barracuda lake, Twin Lagoons, Banol beach, Beach 91, Atuwayan Beach, Maynuno Beach, Skeleton wreck and many more.

Mining in Palawan

...Mining in Palawan and its impacts to biodiversity and local communities • The country has 3% old growth forest left, and much of this is in Palawan. We cannot let this go. Mining and logging go together because you cannot mine without cutting trees. • Palawan has 17 Key Biodiversity Sites; 7 protected areas; 2 World Heritage sites. Yet most of mining applications in Palawan overlap key biodiverstiy sites. We need to remember that reforestation does not not restore lost biodiversity. • There are many laws designed to protect Palawan, including its declaration as a UNESCO Man and Biosphere Reserve; Mangrove Reserve and Wildlife Reserve. Three-fourths of Palawan has been declared protected. The Palawan SEP law states that there should be no mining in natural forests. Mining in Palawan is a gross violation of these laws. • The stand of miners that there can be mining in the southern part of Palawan while leaving the Northern Part for tourism is foolish to say the least. The southern part is equally rich in diversity. It is archaic thinking to believe that one can mine one part of the island without affecting the other. • Palawan is very narrow, and the topography is steep. Any mining, being large or small scale, is a risk to the farmlands and fishing resources. Cutting down forests in the mountain causes erosion that kills coral reefs, and mine tailings spill into farmlands. • Citinickel is currently mining in Narra - the rice granary of Palawan - severely......

...Romblon, Eastern Samar, Leyte del Norte, Davao Oriental, Misamis Oriental and Palawan. (Lopez: 1992)   Palawan is a biodiversity hotspot in the Philippines. Few places on earth can match the distinction of the province, home to seven protected areas, a declared “Game Refuge and Bird Sanctuary” since 1967, and a “Mangrove Reserve” since 1981. UNESCO declared the whole Province a Man and Biosphere Reserve in 1990. In Palawan are two World Heritage Sites: The Tubbataha Reef Marine Park and the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park. The expansive reserves of metal ores particularly nickel and chromite, which lay underneath old growth forests, attracts mining investments into the province. (Impact, 45:7: 2011) Currently, around 400 mining applications are still waiting for their approval in the office of the DENR. These applications threaten Palawan. Even before the revitalization act of mining industries in the Philippines, Palawan already have the 1992 Strategic Environmental Plan for Palawan Act to ensure conservation and preservation of Palawan’s natural resources. This SEP Law promotes sustainable development; thus, encouraging eco-tourism rather than mining industries in the Province of Palawan.   Statement of the Problem This research study is a case study on the revitalization of the mining industry in the Philippines under the Mining Act of 1995 focusing on the province of Palawan.

...City Palawan will soon be home to the Philippines’ largest micro-grid solar power plant, generating 1.3 megawatts of clean renewable energy. Costing P325 million, the plant will have 5,000 solar panels that will provide power to over 600 customers — homes, businesses and hotels — in Puerto Princesa City’s Sabang district. It will also have a battery pack, the largest in the ASEAN region, that will release stored energy during heavy cloud cover or bad weather. To put that in perspective, a mobile phone battery has about 4.6 watthours, while the Sabang plant’s battery pack is 782,000 times bigger, packing 3,600,000Wh. To provide nighttime power, the plant will also be equipped with diesel generators that can produce 1 MW of electricity. Atem Ramsundersingh, chief executive officer of Singapore-based WEnergy Global, said the generators will run on diesel fuel for the meantime. WEnergy has a 40-percent stake in the project. “Hopefully these machines will run on biodiesel in the near future to get a full clean system. We cannot use biodiesel now as it is much more expensive than normal diesel,” said Ramsundersingh. “But the power plant is designed in such a way that we will use about 50 percent solar/battery and 50 percent diesel which brings our power plant close to carbon neutral: no pollution!” The plant will be operated by Sabang Renewable Energy Corporation, a joint venture between local company Delta-P Inc., a company that runs diesel power plants in Palawan, and......

Spratlys- The Philippine Territory The Sultanate State of Sulu is the legal owner of the Spratlys Archipelago but since the Sultan Kiram turnover his territorial and proprietary rights of the State to the Republic of the Philippines including the North Borneo, Palawan and the Spratlys in 1960’s, then legally it belongs to the Philippines. Archipelagic Bases Under the UN International Laws of Sea, despite the opposition of maritime powers, the Philippines and four other states (Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Fiji and Bahamas) got the approval in the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea held in Jamaica last December 10, 1982. They were qualified as archipelagic states. The Spratlys is within Philippines proximity and connected in the Philippines’ archipelago with just few kilometers from the province of Palawan of the Philippines, this boost the claim of the Philippines. Other claimants are not archipelagic states and they are far from beyond the limit of the UNCLOS of 200 nautical Miles Exclusive Economic Zone. The Philippines as an archipelagic country & within proximity, it counts merit in administering the Spratlys. UN Convention – International Law of Sea (UNCLOS) bases China argued that there is no word proximity mentioned in the UNCLOS so they insisted that......

Tourism Theory

...ecotourism destinations in its tourism plan include Palawan and Boracay. Palawan, the Last Ecological Frontier Palawan is the second largest province in the Philippines; with a total land area of 16,403.1 sq km, comprising of 1,768 islands (NSCB, 2002). In 1967, the entire province was declared a Fish and Wildlife Sanctuary. Palawan also has the highest number of protected areas in the Philippines-12 national parks, 3 bird sanctuaries, 24 watershed forest reserves, and 6 mangrove forest reserves (DENR, 1987). UNESCO has classified the province as a Man and Biosphere Reserve and the Tubbataha Reef Marine National Park and St. Paul Subterranean River National Park as World Heritage Sites. Palawan is also home to four indigenous tribes; namely, the Tagbanua, the Pala'wan, the Batak and the Tao't-bato (PPIO, 2002). The 1980s saw a period of intense commercial logging, which left the province ecologically stressed. As a result of a long campaign by environmental groups and a change in local leadership due to free elections, timber license agreements were cancelled in 1992 (Broad and Cavanagh, 1993). An alternative industry had to emerge because of the banning of commercial logging. Tourism was the logical successor. Since the 1990s, Palawan has been promoted as an ecotourist destination by the Department of Tourism (DOT, 1991). Recently, Rep. Kahlil Mitra, congressman from the second district, has filed House Bill 3453, making Palawan as the Ecotourism Capital of the......
