Four Thai island was closed to tourists
Four Thai Island Marine National Park Mu Ko Chumphon in the Gulf of Thailand, famous for its coral and mangrove forests, closed to tourists to help corals recover.
Marine biologists have found that huge sections of coral reefs bleached due to climate change. Spring heatwave lasted longer than usual, the sea is warm stronger, and it caused the death of the coral.
So, on the orders of management of the Department of National Parks of Thailand, a few months visitors will not be allowed to popular with divers Koh Ngam Noi, Koh Maprao, Ko-Ko Kula-Rad. The same applies to fishing vessels. The exact timing of the opening of the islands can not call nobody – experts will monitor the recovery of coral reefs.
Open to dive with a mask remains Koh Ngam Yai, write “News of Thailand.”
