Boats Damage Corals of Boracay

It was a nice day, snorkeling in the pristine waters at the south tip of Boracay (Angolbeach). Here at low tide, just a few inches under the water, spreads a field of beautyful Porites (Corals). It’s the spot where they bring hundreds of tourists every day to show case the underwater world. Yet, it’s just incredible how little the people who are in the business with tourists, care about that precious, sensitive habitat. In fact, they belong to the destroyers of the coral reefs.

If it is banga or sailingboat: many times I saw them crashing on coralls when it is low tide. They just don’t keep distance to the shore. They even wash or paint there boats on the beach. Nobody cares about the environment, neither above nor under water!
