JAMES ANAK BALI
BRINGING LIFE TO A BARREN OCEAN
Over-fishing and overuse of trawling nets destroyed much of the rich marine life in the waters of Sarawak. James Anak Bali, a passionate marine biologist has found an unconventional way to save the ocean floors. This is how he did it.
Similajau, A Marine Life Sanctuary.
For years, trawlers and their fishing nets wrecked ruin in the pristine waters off Sarawak. Over-fishing and tourist activities have contributed to a 90% decline in the local turtle population. Today, thanks to the unconventional efforts of one man, Similajau Marine Park is on its way to recovery, with cement reef balls acting as silent sentinels, forming a barrier of silent protection around this marine life sanctuary.
