for the coral reefs?
very sad that many coral reefs have been damaged in the past by
fishermen. Many fishermen used cyanide and
dynamite to get fish in a more easy and fast way. To use the cyanide was an
effective way not to kill but paralyze (put them to sleep) the fish
for some time. It was then easy to collect the fish in a relative short time.
The fish was sold to traders. Using the dynamite by the fishermen caused a lot of damage to
of the Philippine government
The government of the Philippines, have realized that the reefs of the area can be a
very good economic resource in another way than fishing! For tourists diving and
snorkelling in these coral waters, is one of the most pleasant ways to spend
holidays in a tropical country like the Philippines. For the Philippines, tourism
is more and more an important economic sector. Tourism brings a lot of dollars
to the country and creates many jobs.
dynamite belongs to the past
Philippine government has taken steps to preserve these areas of biodiversity.
The policy is effective. Fishermen are convinced too that tourism is a very good
alternative for generating income. The result is that no
further damage happened in the last years. The coral reefs can restore with
the speed of one inch in five years.
