It’s hard getting a balance with people earning a living and preserving nature but they need to find better ways than dredging.

Yes it's a hard balance as a lot of the local economies rely on these industries , I think there are several hand diving companies on the go now , but not sure if it's a method really able to keep up with demand . Dredging certainly isn't the way because of the destruction caused .
