Coral Reefs

Exploring the underwater wonderlands

Why do we need to protect our corals?Reef fish depend on coral for survival and coral reefs protect beaches from erosion & wave action.

Our coral reefs are in a little bit of trouble; climate change and overfishing are the main causes of why we've lost 1/3 of the reefs all over the world. As a result, fishes and micro-organisms are forced out of their home.
