The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) will likely reject proposals to build an underwater park in Palawan, in the wake of the government’s intensified campaign to safeguard the country’s marine biodiversity. Environment Undersecretary Jonas Leones said that while the DENR had not received any formal application for a planned Coral World Underwater Park, reportedly being planned off Coron town, such project would not likely get government approval. "I don’t think this will ever get approved, considering that our current thrust right now is rehabilitating our oceans. That will go against the programs of our President,” he said.
