Goa CM Sawant praises Environment Day with ‘Corals and Crabs’

Goa harbors its coral reefs into the lesser known reefs around Grande Island. Goa Goa CM Pramod Sawant explained the occasion of World Environment Day 
He released a book “Corals and Crabs” jointly published by the Forest Department of Goa and WWF-India at the Goa Science Centre Auditorium in Panaji. 
Corals and Crabs is a first step towards bridging this existing knowledge gap and bringing amazing marine species found in the reefs of Goa such as Stingrays, Lionfish, Ghost Pipefish, Decorator Crabs and a whole array of Sea Slugs.
The book features over 30 stunning photographs of marine habitats and biodiversity taken during WWF-India’s underwater surveys at dive sites around Grand Island in 2018 to assess the impact of diving on the reefs around the island.
Increasing marine based tourism made protection and monitoring of these habitats critical. 
Experiences such as scuba diving, snorkeling and dolphin watching, while an important source of revenue for the state and an enriching experience for tourists, tend to mount pressure on marine habitats and wildlife.
