Mountaineer Calls Out Quarrying Company: DO NOT DESTROY THE LIONESS AND THE RHINO ROCK

To the owners of Spar, the quarrying company that supposedly “owns” Lioness and Rhino Rock and is planning to close the rock formations to visitors: I appeal to your good hearts: keep the formations open to visitors and more importantly, I implore you: DO NOT DESTROY THE LIONESS AND THE RHINO ROCK. Whatever profit you will earn from these rocks cannot match the priceless gift of beauty, and the pride that this rock formation has brought to the people of Norzagaray and the nature lovers of our country. And to my fellow mountaineers: let us join the concerned citizens of Norgazaray in keeping Lioness and Rhino Rock open and safe! Share our appeal to all your friends!

“Whatever profit you will earn from these rocks cannot match the priceless gift of beauty, and the pride that this rock formation has brought to the people of Norzagaray and the nature lovers of our country,” he wrote.

Pinoy Mountaineer author Gideon Lasco wrote that Norzagaray Councilor Jun-Jun Saplala informed him of Spar’s instructions to locals to stop inviting visitors to Lioness and Rhino in preparation for the area’s closure.

“As you are a quarrying company, you will excuse us for fearing the worst, and that is, that the rock formations are at risk of being quarried — and perhaps as soon as possible, before more people see the beauty there and become concerned about the plight of the rock animals,” Lasco stated on his website.
