Coral Reef Conservation
††††††† There are many different ways that anyone can do to help protect coral reefs.† First, you could simply learn about coral reefs.† Learning about them will help people know how fragile they are, and how important they are to the world.† You could also support an organization to help prevent coral reef damage.† Another way to help is to not use any chemical enhanced pesticides or fertilizers because they are harmful to the coral.† Even if you donít live near a coral reef, the chemicals could still end up in a waterway that leads to the ocean. You might even want to volunteer for a reef cleanup. Again, you donít have to live close to a coral reef to do this. Possibly you could help clean them up on your next vacation to the beach.† Make sure that you only buy marine fish and other reef organisms that you know have been collected in a safe way.† You could ask the store manager where the organism was collected and how they were collected.† Another cool way to protect them is to try to help at your local zoo or aquarium.† Also if you ever dive never touch the coral or leave debris behind.† Recycling also helps keep trash out of the coral reef environment.† You might also want to consider conserving water because the less wasted water there is the less in the ocean. Help protect the coral reefs by reporting any illegal waste dumping or other activities.† Finally remember to stay informed and to spread the word because with every little thing that you do to help is saving one reef at a time.
