Underground river in Puerto Princesa in Palawan

In a photo taken on February 18, 2011 tourist boat enter an underground river in Puerto Princesa in Palawan. For tourists the Philippine island of Palawan seems like paradise, but for environment activists it feels more akin to a battlefield. Murders and threats on what is promoted as the Southeast Asian nation's last ecological frontier are emblematic of a struggle across the country, where dozens of environment campaigners have been killed over the past decade.
