Officials took the world famous Maya Bay in Krabi to determine ways to protect the marine life, including the stunning corals, which is visited by as many as 5000 visitors per day.
Department of National Park, Wildlife and Plant Conservation alongside well-known architects, were involved in the operation, as they seek to preserve the ocean features that so many of us adore.
Thanya Nethithammakul, Director-General of the Department of National Park, Wildlife and Plant Conservation led the group to Maya Bay, which falls under the banner of Hat Noppharat Thara-Mu Koh Phi Phi National Park.
An order is already in place to close Maya Bay from June to September of this year, so that the ECO system has time to rejuvenate, as tourism takes its toll on the area.
The officials also visited the esteemed Lo Samah Bay, where a pier is to be constructed to help prevent beach landings by small boats. Buoys will also be put in place to keep boats away from the beach area completely. The problem in this area is the damage done by anchors from boats.
Let us hope that they come up with a way to protect this valuable resource but permit visitors to enjoy the stunning views too.
