The Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park (PPSRNP) was featured by Google on its June 30 search engine home page.
The American multinational technology company Google LLC featured an illustration of the underground river by artist David Lu.
The featuring date coincided with the 2012 Ramsar Convention on Wetlands’ (RCW) recognition of the subterranean park as a “wetlands of international importance”.
Elizabeth Maclang, PPSRNP park superintendent (PASu), said they viewed the Google feature also as a recognition of their efforts to conserve the national park.
“Ni-recognize nila ‘yong essence na siguro nakikita nila, naririnig, o nalalaman ‘yong effort ng conservation para sa PPUR ng mga Puerto Princesans and ng province of Palawan in general and ng buong Pilipinas. Kaya even sila sa Google ay more effort daw nila ‘yon na sana ay magsilbing reminder na lahat ay accountable and responsible na ma-proteksyonan at ma-conserve ‘yong national park na ito,” Maclang said.
