Koh Rin South Rock Reefs Destroyed!

Posted on 01/20/11 No Comments Wow! Dived Koh Rin South Rock recently and noticed the reef was almost completely dead. There were unexploded bombs around the reef (remnants from bombing by the local military). The reef and coral were covered in fish nets, as if the coral around the island has been relentlessly fished to death. Diving South Rock was really depressing. I almost cried while underwater to see a once thriving marine ecosystem full of life and color destroyed by net fishing and bombing target practice. So sad.
