Palawan is not just an island in the Philippines; it is one of the world’s last frontiers. Rich in biodiversity it is home to some of the rare and endangered species both fauna and flora. Palawan is our last frontier, our last hope.

What does it cost to mine Palawan for its mineral deposits? The Philippine government, Chamber of Mines and large scale mining companies claim that mining is the solution to poverty, mouthing responsible mining in the name of economic progress. but what is true wealth?

Our beautiful country has very little forest cover left. In the place of once-bountiful green canopies, from Cordillera to Zamboanga, filled with life and watersheds beneath- are vast gaping wounds and desolate places, unsuitable for planting or life sustenance. Mining’s legacy of destruction, abuse, displacement and pollution goes on in the name of economic progress

What is the price Palawan paying for billions of pesos expected earnings from mining for export? Palawan’s katutubos, farmers and concerned citizens voice their anguish, indignation and stories for us and the rest of world to hear.

What does it take to make the president and this government to prioritize the environment and act for the protection of our country’s true wealth? 10 millions signatures! sign up and be counted, if you care for Palawan, if you care for our country.

Please sign-up here and have your voice heard.

Save Palawan. Save its People. Help us protect Palawan’s biodiversity and UNESCO sites from mining.
