Stop Bombing the Mentawai Reefs!

Since 1980's, the remote Mentawai Islands have been attacked by fishermen using dynamite to explode the reef in order to kill fish.  With increasing tourism and local populations, the bombers can no longer operate in secrecy.  This practice must stop!  We are petitioning the Indonesian government to help Mentawai patrol her western border in order to stop bomb fishing and other illegal activities.
