This petition had 407 supporters


The Togian Islands are a unique marine environment with all 3 types of coral reef formations and diverse marine life that needs to be protected for national and global benefit. Although a Marine Park status has approval due to corrupt officials its implementation is being blocked so we need to draw the Indonesian central government's attention to this issue so is swiftly rectified and guarantee proper protection and controls are placed on the area to ensure its survival for future generations. So thus benefit the local community as a sustainable source of income for the future and as a global world heritage site environmental asset.

Please help us get a Marine Protected Area (MPA) statusapplied to the Togian Islands so preserved for future generations to enjoy and allow fish stocks to recover to benifit all including local fishermen

Also to draw attention to Central Government not to increase National Park fees or switch them to a daily basis which would lead to the death of the tourism industries that service guests in these parks. Need to stick to the present yearly fee as with a daily fee system tourists would find alternative dive destinations with more sensible and affordable price structures and most importantly that there is transparent and effective use of the funds raised at present to properly protect these parks in the field and not just line pockets in Jakarta and elsewhere.
