No to Bikini Bottom in Coron

Dear Nickelodeon,

I grew up watching your shows. I also grew up swimming, snorkeling, and diving in the Philippines’ rich seas.

Yesterday, you announced the plan to build an underwater theme park in Coron, Palawan, which will cover 400 hectares. Contrary to your statement that it would “advocate ocean protection,” it will accomplish the opposite. By building artificial structures, you will undeniably damage and disrupt Palawan’s marine ecosystems — our last frontier.

For a channel that targets children, you are setting a terrible example to the younger generation by taking away their right to enjoy our natural resources. We don’t need an underwater theme park — our underwater life is fascinating, entertaining, and educational on its own.

Spongebob would agree.

Best fishes,
Anna Oposa
Chief Mermaid and Executive Director
Save Philippine Seas
