A new underwater video, entitled "Marine Parks Make Economic Sense" is the 15-minute, English-language cut of an environmental video, aimed at governments across Southeast Asia.  Based on new scientific research, it makes the case that marine parks improve the economy of the region and the livelihood of local fishing communities.  The next step is to get versions made in all the major ASEAN languages then distribute it directly to government departments and leaders.  I have no idea if this will achieve anything, but we have to try to educate those that have the power to do something to better protect the oceans.
