Simon Walsh, Operations Manager, shares his work and experience with Nature Island Dive over the years.
The marine reserve, est. 1998 is a protected area from Champagne reef to Scotts Head. Overlooked by the local government and three wardens, the reserve houses fishing priority zones, dive priority, and recreational area zones.
By protecting and maintaining these areas, the wildlife population can blossom uninterrupted by man-made actions and gradually migrate outside of the reserve, contributing to surrounding fishing villages.
One of their sustainability projects features coral reefs. Coral is a living creature that grows and dies and is affected by poor fishing practices, climate change, and global warming.
