The Issue

Coastal development, including tourism-related development, is especially apparent Pulau Redang and Tioman Marine Parks in Malaysia. Large resorts including golf courses increase sediment loading in the sea. This sedimentation was linked with increases in percentage of dead coral cover near the development sites. The coral reefs at Pulau Tioman have also suffered from pollution and commercial coral collection.
