A logging company in Papua New Guinea has been digging up part of a coral reef for ground work before beginning logging operations.

The coral reef is in the Kandrian-Gloucester district in West New Britain.

Sub contractor  Lolo Development Corporation says it's not harming the reef and if local people want development, it's the price they have to pay.
