Where the coral reef

A possible problem that affects my ecosystem is oil spills.Oils spills affect the animals.This happened because the coral can cut the oil tank on the ship.

A possible problem that my ecosystem is when the climate change.Climate change  can affect the corals.When the climate change the coral start to turn white or start bleaching.

A possible problem affect my ecosystem is when people removed coral from the reefs.This affect the animals and coral because some fishes live in the coral reef.If they keep on removing the corals the fishes are going leave thier homes  or dead because people are breaking apart.

This is why people should take of the coral reef.


HOW WE CAN HELP???!!!!   Solve these problem

Do you want to make a difference every day? Want to learn about simple, effective actions you can take to help save coral reefs and the fish, animals, and plants that depend on them? You've come to the right place!

  1. Help reduce pollution: walk, bike or ride the bus. Fossil fuel emissions from cars and industry raise lead to ocean warming which causes mass-bleaching of corals and can lead to widespread destruction of reefs
    1. Conserve water: The less water you use, the less runoff and wastewater will pollute our oceans.
  2.                 If you consume fish caught in a way that damages coral reefs, you are part of the problem. Not using products obtained through damaging the environment is a way to help protect the reefs. Understand which fish are caught in a way that damages reefs, and spread the word.eaving behind things like fishing nets or general garbage on a beach can harm coral reefs. Throwing litter into the ocean itself can eventually cause the trash to come into contact with the coral reef. This show you how we can help the coral reef.

Coral reefs are located in tropical oceans near the equator. The largest coral reef is the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. The second largest coral reef can be found off the coast of Belize, in Central America. Other reefs are found in Hawaii, the Red Sea, and other areas in tropical oceans.Coral reefs are diverse underwater ecosystems held together by calcium carbonate structures secreted by corals. Coral reefs are built by clonoies of tiny animals found in marine waters that contain few nutrients. Most coral reefs are built from stony corals, which in turn consist of polys that cluster in groups. The polyps belong to a group of animals known as Cnidaria, which also includes sea anemones and jellyfish. Unlike sea anemones, corals secrete hard carbonate exoskeletons which support and protect the coral polyps. Most reefs grow best in warm, shallow, clear, sunny and agitated waters.
