Today I am in Wakatobi, Southeast Sulawesi province to release turtle hatchlings to the sea to maintain our marine ecosystem. In Wakatobi, there is a national park with an area of 1.3 million hectares. There are also many exquisite coral reefs here. Therefore, we also transplanted coral reefs to preserve coral reefs in the waters of Wakatobi.

I think if such activities are conducted not only in Wakatobi but also in other provinces, other regencies, other cities, I suppose we can continue to maintain our marine resource conservation and ecosystem. I think this is an excellent event from all people and also from environmental community organizations. This movement must continue to be run.

Be careful, be careful with coral reefs. Be careful with coral reefs in Wakatobi. We must maintain it carefully. Do not let it be broken even just a little because it will be a great asset for Wakatobi, for Southeast Sulawesi province to build a blue economy in the future. This is just the beginning.

That concludes my statement.
