In the article, “Coral Reefs Show Damage From Climate Change” I learned that Coral reefs are important for many reasons. They support about one-fourth of all fish species on Earth. They also help protect and work as a shield for coastlines from storms. Between 2008 and 2019, the world lost about 14 percent of its total amount of coral reefs. Them being damaged is the result of the ongoing and prolonged effects of warming ocean surface temperatures. Other elements that cause damage to coral reefs include overfishing, increasing carbon dioxide levels in the water, new development along coasts, and declining water quality.How can you help save reefs?
I think we should put an end to this as soon as possible. We are destroying animals’ homes. This is definitely unfair. Even though Scientists are studying ways to restore reefs by “breeding” coral that is more resistant to warmer temperatures, we should play our part in trying to preserve these creatures’ homes.
