Dear visitors, with the Azure Window gone, a lesson should be learnt. Don’t take me for granted any longer. I’m still full of treasures hidden and exposed, endemic plants and fauna, fossils, and much more. Take care of them, protect them, enjoy them. I like your company but please don’t hurt me anymore.
