Reduced Vis, Improved Optimism

Date December 20, 2010

Today, I received an email from a member of the public who learned about our work from the Straits Times article:

I must confess that I’ve only recently been made aware of the work that you guys are doing out at P. Hantu after the ST article. In fact, I did my open water course in Hantu, back in 2006. I have to say though, conditions then were really terrible, with occasions where I can’t even see my fins!

It’s good to know now, that things have changed for the better and that there are people championing the cause to increase awarness. Having a diving playground close to home is something that most regular bubble breathers would treasure, I’m sure. I look forward to the opportunity to be able to dive with you guys in the future. I’d appreciate if you guys can let us know the details of your regular trips and I’m sure I can muster some friends along.

Until then, keep up the good work!

It’s wonderful to hear from the public. Especially those who haven’t dived with us. It inspires and encourages us that people are compelled to get in touch with us after hearing about our work.

I too have something to confess. The conditions at Pulau Hantu have not changed “for the better”. The one thing that has changed, are people’s perceptions. And that, is what is most needed to safeguard our natural heritage, no matter which way the environment changes.
