The province of Palawan is part of the “Man and Biosphere Reserve” program of UNESCO, and hosts 49 animals and 56 botanical species found in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. In the southernmost portion of the island, the Bulanjao range, with its unique forest on ultramafic soil, is one of the best-conserved biodiversity hot spots on the island. Due to its sizable deposit of nickel ore, the range and has been subjected to mineral exploration and development by the Rio Tuba Nickel Mining Corporation (RTNMC). Road construction, as well as mining exploration and extractive activities on Mt. Bulanjao, have taken place in areas that fall into the so-called “Core Zones” of maximum protection. The planned expansion of RTNMC into Mount Bulanjao range highlights the ongoing confusion about the interpretation of environment-related policies and development-mining push.
