Pandemic a blessing for coral, marine life
A Facebook user posted photographs of coral growing on artificial reefs and a bounty of marine creatures captured while diving near Koh Libong and Koh Kradan islands off the coast of Trang.
Wachirun Chaisawatt shared the photographs and his experience of the beauty of the Andaman Sea on Monday.
The artificial reefs were built more than 15 years ago in a bid to provide a stable growing area for coral and a habitat for marine creatures.
Apart from time, the other factor that is helping coral recovery is the Covid-19 pandemic, which has paralysed the tourism sector.
