Nice story, and a nice conservation effort. 

And then once again Kur comes goose-stepping onto the scene, with his never-ending quest to transform the inferior Thai race into an Austro-Germanic state...

1.2 Tons of rubbish clearing, A lot of respect to all these students and volunteer conservative  participants.
Never before so much rubbish collected during such exercise?

What is 'wrong' at that Koh Racha Noi location?
It is a day visit location, yes?

So, hold the speed boat companies and the thai tour guides ( they studied the environment laws in order to get their license) responsible for this 1.2 Tons of rubbish.
Charge them, make them pay heavenly.
Make them responsible for all this dumping by their passengers/tourists.
And when there are guesthouses on that island, charge them too.
Authorities should think: Hey, how can, no rubbish collection from the guest houses, and the speed boats?
Meaning: All the rubbish dumped in the water.
Simple thinking, yes?

Make thai people responsible for their environment, make them pay for their negligence.
