PHUKET:-- Sophon Thongdee, Director-General of the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR), will follow up with the Director-General of the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP) over pressing charges against the operators of a speedboat that dropped anchor on baby corals in a protected area near Phi Phi Island.

 

The move follows Nalinee Thongtham, an officer at the DMCR’s Phuket Marine Biological Center, posting photos of the boat and of the damaged corals on her Facebook page.

 

The DMCR posted Ms Nalinee’s report on its own official Facebook page earlier today (Dec 18), and “condemned” the incident.

Confiscate the boat, cancel the licence of the "captain", if proven accusations
