    It is a sad fact that many of these cultures which live closer to nature are doomed. In 1967, I dived off a small island in the Philipinnes. The beauty of the reef and sealife was breathtaking. I returned to the same dive site in 1990. Over the interim years the indiginous population had fished with explosives. This left the reef virtually lifeless. The fishermen, and much of the population, were long gone.
