We thank you Absolute Scuba (Andy Taylor) for his assistance by providing some of the necessary equipment for the team and Bali Marine Sports (Made Wirawan) for his support and his friendship.
It would have been very pleasant to see other stake holders from the tourism industry specially the Marine Tourism Industry taking part in making event like this a successful event as this sort of activities are done on be half of all and good benefit will be shared by all. From the first part of this expedition what we have found was over 90% of the reefs in Bali are destroyed, Bali is loosing 2-3m of beach every year because of abrasions and as the results of this destructive methods of fishing (bomb fishing and cyanide, potassium fishing) around Bali such as what we have experienced some areas there were 5 bomb fishing events in 1 hour time. Also Destruction of Marine archeological sites (Ship Wrecks etc) around Bali. The negative result of all this will hurt traditional fisherman around Bali and Marine Tourism Industry stake holders.
All of us need to work hard to keep the envirionment of Bali clean and protection & Preserve the envirionment of Bali for future generations. As one of few natural resouses available in Bali is the ocean. Man made polusions such as plastic in north and west of Bali is more than fish. This is a pitty.
We will update all the information after accomplish this trip!!
