Make Sipadan a fully protected marine reserve...

Sipadan has become the unwelcome poster child for unsustainable tourism development. At this point, the only appropriate course of action would be to fully protect the island as a no-dive, no-take marine reserve. Only those who have been authorized to protect the island should be allowed on it and all fishing and tourist boats should be forbidden from entering a 1-kilometer exclusion zone around the island. Anything less than that invites more trouble.
