The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Secretary Gina Lopez on Wednesday has pronounced her final decision concerning the US children’s television network Nickelodeon’s proposal to build an undersea theme park in Palawan.

In a post on Twitter, DENR quoted Lopez as saying she “won’t allow the underwater theme park in Palawan.”

The resort and underwater theme park would encompass 400-hectare undersea development showcasing marine life in the area.

But environmental groups have protested, claiming it would destroy the world-famous marine ecosystem.
