Even though having managed to preserve the coral reefs at Penuktukan village, Tejakula subdistrict, the fishermen of the village still worry. They worry if the coral reefs in the eastern Buleleng will be damaged again as happening in the 1970s.
Group Head of the Taman Segara of Penuktukan village, Tejakula, Nyoman Wartawan, said that since he successfully organized the fishermen at his village to work together in maintaining the condition of coral reefs, he still worried if there would be unscrupulous people trying to destroy the coral reefs. To that end, other than assigning the group to preserve the coral reefs, this calm man also inculcated the vivacity to his members to conduct surveillance collectively.
The man occupying the position as Headman of Penuktukan added that based on the data at hand the coral reef park zone that had been well maintained reached 250 meters to the east. Along the coral reef park zone, the diving travelers would not need the help of a boat to reach the location of the coral reef park.
On the contrary, the travelers would be enough to swim at a depth of 15 meters and they could see the underwater panorama that was no less beautiful than that of other regions. Similarly, population of the colorful fish in the area was pretty much. By all means, travelers would be interested in diving along the coastal area of Penuktukan. “Throughout this zone is always watched and managed by our group members while taking tourists to have diving adventure,” explained Wartawan.
