One of my suggestions would be that you don't pretend that a reef can be 
"rehabilitated to a natural state."  That's very presumptuous and not 
close to being true.

Funding issues often limit the amount of attention that can be paid to 
this and biological success should be of utmost importance, however, is 
there much demand for an aesthetically pleasing dive site? I am

come up with solutions to aesthetics for the interim, before a reef is 
rehabilitated to a natural state. Please let me know of any suggestions 
you have.
