Thailand is barring snorkeling and diving in a lot of historically popular marine parks. I am not a diver, but even this is big news for me. I love water in general and in principle. I find being near water reinvigorating and reviving.
What bothers me more.. take a look at this except:
[Marine biologist Niphon] watched horrified as a group of tourists swimming and snorkelling broke and destroyed the live coral.
Seriously? I mean SERIOUSLY?!? What is wrong with people?? Just because they are traveling to a country with less restrictions means they can willy nilly selfishly do that?? Shame shame on them.
