Divers take an abandoned fishing net that was covering a coral reef out of the sea in a protected area of Ko Losin, Thailand June 19, 2021. Removal of the nets by a group of volunteer divers and the Coastal Resources Research Center, helped by the Royal Thai Navy, revealed long lines of coral bleaching inside the protected area around Ko Losin, a small rocky islet in the southern waters of the gulf.

Divers take an abandoned fishing net out of the sea with floating plastic bags that was covering a coral reef in a protected area of Ko Losin, Ko Losin, Thailand June 20, 2021. The divers tied plastic bags filled with air to the net to get it to float to the surface, carefully cutting the parts caught in the coral. The divers carried out six trips over the weekend to complete the operation.

"The hardest part of this operation was removing the fishing net from staghorn coral because it was full of branches and fragile," said Chanchot Piriyasatit, a dive master volunteer. REUTERS/Jorge Silva
