Indonesia - good News!

You really got to read this.

Indeed, who would have thought.
I've dived in Indonesia since '87 and have seen many places regress from stellar to average to desolate as the Chinese cyanide fishermen selectively extirpated the big Groupers and Napoleon Wrasses and thousands upon thousands of poor small scale fishermen did bomb and strip mine the reefs for protein. 
By 2002 good reef diving could only be found in a select few protected places like Wakatobi and Komodo, and the general outlook was grim - so it's really fantastic to hear that things are looking up!

So here's to those committed people that have made a difference.
Thank you!
