Netizens Quickly Share New 200-Peso Design Inspired by Resort in Chocolate Hills

As dismay swept through netizens upon the discovery of a new resort nestled amidst the Chocolate Hills today, they swiftly took action to alter the appearance of the 200-peso bill, drawing inspiration from the newly erected resort.

The transformation of the Chocolate Hills’ appearance is significant, especially when compared to its original form before the construction of the resort. These hills have long been hailed as one of the natural wonders of the world, having formed naturally over hundreds of years, untouched by human hands.

In this modern age of technological advancement, however, our natural tourist spots are increasingly at risk of degradation. Even mountains that have remained untouched for centuries are now being developed with restaurants, coffee shops, and resorts. Consequently, some areas in the country are now prone to flooding, landslides, and other natural calamities due to the destruction of natural habitats.

The construction of structures like the one in the Chocolate Hills, which detracts from its natural beauty, is something netizens strongly oppose. They refuse to let such actions go unnoticed, and instead, have taken to creating various memes, including one depicting the new design of the 200-peso bill.

In response to the public outcry, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) swiftly issued a statement clarifying that it had already ordered the temporary closure of the viral resort in Chocolate Hills, Bohol, last year. Moreover, the DENR revealed that it had issued a notice of violation to the project proponent in January for operating without an environmental compliance certificate (ECC).

This incident serves as a reminder of the importance of preserving our natural treasures. While development is essential for progress, it should not come at the cost of destroying the very beauty that makes our country unique. It is crucial for both government agencies and the public to work hand in hand to ensure the sustainable development and preservation of our natural wonders for generations to come.
