GOOOOOODDDDDDDDD NEWSSSS!!!!!!!
It's in Maldives, at Bolifushi, in 2003, that my daughter Jasmine & I got our PADI Open Water Diver Certificate. We noticed that the Coral reef seemed bleached (as a consequence of the "El Nino") I wanted to go back there but the Tsunamy tragedy occurred and I know that also that island suffered terrible damages, so I guess the Coral reef life.
From the point of view of sea life & corals diversity, the Red Sea is more colourful and astonishing, We both experienced this in 2004, when we got the PADI Advanced Open Water Certificate.

WE MUST DO WHATEVER IS POSSIBLE TO SAVE BIODIVERSITY!!!!

Wonderful news. Now to get the other nations to do the same. Shame on USA for not doring this first but rather caving to oil companies to drill in our precious oceans.

A wise and ethical decision and excellent news for the beings who inhabit the waters there. Those huge nets are so evil and are responsible for the deaths of far too many animals.
