The Management Board of Ly Son Marine Reserve in the central province of Quang Ngai has launched a campaign to collect waste from Ly Son Island's coastal waters.

This is one activity to respond to World Environment Day (June 5).

The diving team of the Ly Son Marine Reserve has collected hundreds of kilos of waste at three coral reef sites within the reserve

The majority of the collected waste is non-biodegradable plastic caused by the daily activities of residents and tourists.

The Ly Son Marine Reserve covers over 7,000 hectares, divided into three zones.

Since 2021, the reserve’s management board has organised coral reef monitoring and recorded waste data annually.

The waters of Ly Son boast high biodiversity, with more than 700 species of marine animals and plants.
