Protecting coral reefs is important to our foo d chain. As a coral reef is the home for our beloved fish to reproduce, food supplies, and many more. If everyone does their best to protect the coral reefs, our food chain would not get destroyed.
STEP 1 Go to your nearest coral reef protection group and ask for anything you can do to protect your local reef coral reef. This can include cleanup duties, volunteering, job offers and many more. You can also ask a friend to help along as well.
STEP 2 Do not fish on or near the coral reefs. In some parts of the world, fishing is illegal and fines do apply. But most reefs don’t. Try and tell the residents in your area to stop fishing around or near the coral reefs. Tell them the types of risks that may happen if the coral reefs are killed
STEP 3 Be cautious as a tourist. Tourism is one of the most hazards to the coral reefs. When you go and snorkel, make sure you don’t step on the actual coral. Be careful when you are around the coral. Don’t press on them, hurt them in any type of way. Tell your friends to be careful. Also try to take the flash off of your camera.
STEP 4 Realize that fertilizer ends up in our coral reefs. Therefore, be careful of the toxins you contribute to the environment. Try to reduce the needs of fertilizing and go for composting instead. Composting has many benefits and will save not only your coral reefs but also reduces landfill waste.
STEP 5 Don’t pollute our seas. Your pollution can end up in our coral reefs which will kill and hurt the coral and sea creatures. It’s not hard to put your rubbish in a bin or tell your council to put a bin near the beach.
