That's probably more true than you know in a lot of ways.
Just look at the pictures in the trip report.
Not good diving skills exhibited there, certainly not good for the habitat.
But, they were probably diving deep on air with ther legs held down by ankle weights so they were unable to maintain proper trim or bouyancy control. If they had the skills to do either in the fist place, they (the skills) and the damage the "diver's" were doing and have done to the Hyrdrocoral/reef goes unoticed because of the narcosis from diving air.
Dinosaurs, I thought they were all gone. But alas some are still among us alive and well in the dive community...
