Endangered cockatoo amid a storm

Biologist Peter Widmann and his conservation group the Katala Foundation Inc. (KFI) has added their voice to the chorus of groups opposing the  construction of a coal-fired power plant in Rasa Island in Narra town, two hours south of Puerto Princesa City, saying the facility would pose dangers to the habitat of the nearly extinct Katala, local name of the Palawan cockatoo. For over two decades now, KFI has been working to save the critically endangered bird species (Cacatua haematuropygia) from near extinction.
