    You can fast forward past the discussion if you want but it does add to the movie after. It's interesting to know some of the numbers. Also interesting to see someone trying legitimately do something and to know if you can find a way to make it profitable it's able to make a bigger impact... crazy how that works.

    Thanks Ryan. Watched it straight through. Walt Smith and Ade Project seem to be making great strides on preserving the reef. The Ecotourism seems like a win-win-win as you mentioned above. The lingering question mark seems to be whether the reef farms can exponentially grow and plant corals, like Walt's chart shows, as fast as the environmental factors can destroy them?

    Ultimately you still loose diversity but it's something. If they continue to try and grow it as a function of business it has a chance, if they try to go a pure non profit route it will fail.
