In a meeting around one week ago, Dennis has been elected by the community of dive operators to be the representative of the industry in the upcoming discussions regarding the location(s) of the marine protected areas which will be set in place soon.
Thats good news for all the creatures in the Cambodian sea, the only questions is where will it be best to have conservation area's? Which islands and sites offer the highest biodiversity and where can endangered species be found?
Lots of questions to be discussed, of course also involving the local fishing communities, government officials and the long established local conservation organizations.
We might in future loose some of our divesites but in the long term the quality of diving in Cambodia will become better!
