Suwit Koonkitti assigns Phuket to work on recovering bleached coral and study the effect of tourists spot closing

bleached coral Suwit Koonkitti, the Minister of Natural Resource and Environment said the coral bleaching situation in the Andaman Sea was serious. There was 90% of stag horn coral die from this effect.
“To help with recovering the coral reef, there must be a tourism order such as boat parking zones, limit the number of tourists or closing the coral reef zone. However, if there is to be a study, closing the coral reef area will directly affect tourism as well as any study for the right solution to recover the bleaching corals.

Apart from the coral reef problem, Phuket and nearby provinces also have to think about recovering the sea grass which is the food of Dugongs.” Suwit said.
