    A Chinese vessel was stranded for one week on the Great Barrier reef causing significant damage to the corals, about 1km long.The toxic paint they use on the hull is also spreading and killing everything in the surrounding area.These stupid people took a shortcut route and look what they have done, i get realy mad.

    These chinese people should be fenced in, somewhere in the desert.
    They are responsible for many things.
    I'm thinking of dried seahorses, sharkfins, rhino horn, etc.
    They fishing the oceans empty no matter what.
    The only good thing, that was invented by the chinese government is, couples are allowed to have one child only. That should be done in african nations as well.
    The parents are so poor, they dont have enough to eat, but the baby is on its way.

    Sounds like Africa Marcel - think where the rhino horns come from, and gorilla feet, and elephant hair and and and

    Man I am glad I dived the Breat Barrier Reef before it goes away......
