    The Gulf of Mannar Marine Park's original 21 islands is now down to 19. Two tiny islands located between Sri Lanka and India have disappeared below the waves. Although the region is a protected biological preserve, 'experts' believe fishermen have continually mined the reefs for their corals, eroding the islands' foundations and ultimately sinking them.
