Marine officials on Monday recover the remains of a five-meter disc coral stolen from Koh Wiang in the Gulf of Thailand.

 

CHUMPHON — Officials announced plans to establish a task force to protect marine resources Wednesday after an ancient coral specimen was stolen from an island in the Gulf of Thailand.

 

Environmental Minister Gen. Surasak Kanjanarat said he will establish a Thai Seas Task Force to deal with such thefts as the authorities hunted for suspects in the destruction and theft of the disc coral from a cave on the gulf island of Koh Wiang.

Cannot understand why anyone would want to steal,damage the huge coral,

maybe because it was special,and some people just like to destroy things,

just hope they catch those responsible and its not a 500  THB fine.
