LETS SAVE OUR REEFS
In 1998 was a disaster for coral reefs, almost a forth of coral reefs died around the world,these Large productive and various,species play a huge roll in our ecosystems, which supply Territory to whopping 25 % of marinelife, these reefs start to die due to temperatures rising.
Immediate environmental action has to be taken before its too late,there was incredible idea That was first delveloped by an architect named (MR. Hilbertz) designed for new construction Materials , and was later turned into a coral life saving system,for reproducing coral , by using Electricity to suck stone out of water.
This creates conditions which will allow the coral to reproduce about four time faster than Normal, its call mineral accretion.just an amazing ideas that can to help our precious reefs.
Did you know that coral protects our land from erosion and sometimes pieces of coral break Off Reefs and wash up along our shore lines this produces white sandy beaches ,that we have All Come to love, this is done due to bleach in the reefs, which can starve a coral reef and Soon After killing the reef all together ,just by the temperature rising by one degree or more.
Global warming has the biggest effect on our reefs, the EL NINO weather sparked a disaster of Coral-bleaching ever observed ,turning once healthy reefs into dying reefs. a large number of Reefs were lost in just one year due to this herferic climate change.
HOW CAN WE SAVE OUR CORAL REEFS
A vast majority of the world depend on healthy coral reefs,for tourism and food,but there are many causes of reefs dying off today ,and a few of them are from, overfishing, local pollution, And just plan Igrantance on our part, that play a huge roll in our oceans,but the biggest contribution is climate change ,due to carbon dioxide that's absorbed from the atmosphere.
When oceans absorb carbon it becomes more acidic,and damages a huge amount of marine life from lobsters to plankton,and even some see grass, which so many marine life depend on Feeding and reproducing, in coral reef areas
Mostly half of the worlds reefs are still healthy today, but if there aren't serious changes from And environmental standpoint,then there is a good chance we could lose most of our healthy reefs.
HERE ARE A FEW WAYS WE CAN HELP SAVE OUR HEALTHY CORAL REEFS
