Palawan: We need our land, not oil palms!

The Philippine government is promoting industrial-scale oil palm plantations on the islands of Palawan.

Palawan is a natural treasure so remarkable that UNESCO declared it a Man and Biosphere Reserve in 1990. Please speak out and help stop the trashing of Palawan's extraordinary biodiversity and indigenous culture.
