KAMI learned from Coconuts that Nickelodeon, an American children’s television network has announced that it will push through in building the theme park in Coron, Palawan.
A hotel, a resort, and a condominium will also be built.
Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo told CNN Philippines last Thursday that the owner went to them and told them that they’ll pursue with the project this year.
Environmentalists opposed the controversial project having the idea of building an underwater park that could destroy the pristine beaches in the area.
Save Philippine Seas tried to stop this by creating an online petition asking help from the Local government of Palawan and Nickelodeon to junk their plans. They earned almost 250,000 signatures.
Coron Counselor and Tourism Committee Chairman Michael Sadhwani said that “As of today, we can’t say if we’re pro or against it because we haven’t received a formal letter of intent from the developer.”
