After I did some more research on ways that the Great Barrier Reef can be saved I came up with many easy, possible results, even if you live nowhere near the reef. People in Australia took survey and found that the majority of residents acknowledge and know about the issues with the Great Barrier Reef. The main hindrance was not knowing what actions they could take that would be relevant.
Several ways to help the reef is by reducing your carbon emissions, conserving water, coral reef clean ups, etc. Even planting a tree helps prevent run offs from entering into the ocean. You can reduce your use of electricity, notify a government representative, buy organic produce, etc.
These are just a few easy ways to start making a difference and improve the quality of the not only the reef but any ecosystem or natural habitat today.
