Natural Resources of Puerto Princesa City, Province of Palawan, Philippines
One of the the natural resources of Puerto Princesa is "The Puueto Princesa Subterraneal River National Park". The National Park beckons with its amazing limestone karst landscape and is located in the westcoast of Palawan (82 kms. away from the center of Puerto Princesa City). The Park boasts of a healthy ecosystem and protects some of the most significant forests in Asia. A highlight of each visit is a ride through its 8 km. long Underground River. The River runs through a dome of stalactites complemented by stalagmites running the entire length of the cave.
The area covered by the Subterranean National Park was also increased from 3,901 hectares to 22,202 hectares to include the tributaries of the underground river.
The proclamation also declared it as a protected area under the Network of Integrated Protected Area System (Nipas) Act of 1992.
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources transferred the management of the Subterranean Park to the city government through a Memorandum of Agreement in December 1993. The transfer of management of a national park from the DENR was the first of its kind in the country.

Puerto Princesa is very rich in both flora and fauna. Mangroves are found mostly in the outskirts of the city, and lush foliage can be seen in rainforests and mountains. Different species of fishes are abundant in the reefs surrounding the island. While a variety of bird species, both local and migratory, can be seen in some places.
Immediately after Mayor Edward Hagedorn assumes office as Chief Executive of the city, he launched the Bantay Puerto Program to spearhead the intensified campaign against environmental degradation.
To rehabilitate the city’s forest areas made pitiful by years of exploitation and wanton disregard, Mayor Edward Hagedorn has undertaken a massive reforestation campaign that has become a paradigm in itself. Dubbed as “Pista Y Ang Cagueban” or Feast of the Forest, he was able to mobilize thousands of people fro almost all sectors of the society and greatly succeed not only in terms of the number of trees actually planted but also in inculcating the proper attitude among the Puerto Princesans toward tree planting and conservation.
Being the cleanest and greenest city in the Philippines, it is observable that the Puerto Princesans have mastered the practice of throwing ones garbage in the proper place which is the garbage bin found almost everywhere throughout the city.

- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.
Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.
