This is PANOLY BEACH - beautiful, isn't it?
WELL TAKE A GOOD LOOK, BECAUSE BY 2007 IT WILL BE COMPLETELY SPOILT, ALONG WITH NEIGHBOURING PUNTA BUNGA BEACH.
Despite the fact that this area is meant to be a marine reserve, a large hotel chain have been allowed to comandeer the site, and have installed armed guards to chase visitors away from these previously public beaches.
The forested hillside above the beach is home to several endangered species, including birds and rare fruit bats, and the beach itself is a turtle nesting site, but of course, not for much longer.
The sheer scale of the resort plan means that it will effectively destroy this beautiful tropical forest and it's inhabitants.
The mind boggles at the kind of greedy, sick minded individuals who could take a place this beautiful and choose to cover it in concrete.
Boracay was one of the Philippines' most precious treasures, but sadly, those individuals with the power to protect the island are now responsible for it's demise, having sold out to the big developers regardless of the consequences.
The question is, are the Boracay authorities going to allow the rampant development of the island to continue unchecked?
Plans need to be put in place to protect Boracay's last remaining undeveloped areas (and wildlife) without delay!
