Indonesia truly means business when it comes to protecting the precious marine life off their coast as 10 illegal poaching ships were blown by the navy. Antaranews from Jakarta reported that Indonesia has a taskforce for the eradication of illegal fishing. They truly are taking a very active stance to show the world that they will not be easy on poaching.
This ministry has over 31 patrol boats commissioned and has detained 177 poaching boats and 107 sunk. 103 were foreign fishing boats.

Is it time for the African countries to do the same? The reason why poachers still kill animals because the governments are still easy with them. Imagine if all governments were to take Indonesia’s lead, how quickly would poaching come to an end? But how practical is this? We know it will most likely be a fantasy as most governments are in bed with hunting groups. It is good to know that there are some countries that are standing firm against poaching.
