Wreck turns into mini-reef in just 6 months


Just six months after its sinking off the Thailand coast, a decommissioned naval vessel is already well on its way to becoming a haven for amazing marine life. Already encrusted with barnacles and coral, the wreck is attracting big shoals of reef fish (and keep an eye out for the lionfish that have taken up residence at what was once the ship’s gun post).
