“We will seriously solve this problem,” Songtham Suksawang said yesterday in his capacity as the head of DNP nationalparks division. Many diving sites at famous marine national parks in the Andaman Sea have been closed to tourists since January 21 after coral bleaching killed a large portion of reefs.

“We will propose zoning for diving attractions,” Songtham said.He added that admissionfee hike and the ceiling on the number of tourists each day might also be used to protect the coral reefs.Songtham was speaking during a brainstorming session on the coralbleaching crisis.
