Park officials at the famous Maya Bay, in Thailand’s southern province of Krabi, are busily relocating about 23,000 young corals from the shallows into deeper water to prevent them from possible damage by strong waves during the monsoon season.

 

Mr. Worapote Lomlim, chief of Haad Nopparat Thara Phi-Phi Islands national park, said Sunday that the ecological system and environment of Maya Bay, or Ao Maya, have improved satisfactorily after the bay was closed to all unauthorized visitors and tourists ten months ago.

 

He said, with coral bleaching not as serious as last year, the corals have regenerated and black-tipped coral sharks have returned to the bay.

I would say that sinking some ships and creating man-made reefs would help. The Thais are pretty good at this already.
