Human impact on coral reefs is significant and the list of problems can seem endless: overfishing, destructive fishing, pollution from sewage and agriculture, and sedimentation from poor land-use practices. Fish, corals, and various invertebrates are all taken from reef habitats to serve as aquarium pets or decorative items. wildlife populations are often overexploited to supply the coral reef wildlife trade.1 abandoned fishing net can take out an entire coral reef, killing some of the animals that live there and wiping out the habitat of many others, damaging an already sensitive ecosystem for years to come. As much as one-third of all reef-building corals are at risk of extinction. However, there are many clear-cut actions that can help coral reef ecosystems. We can reduce direct threats to reefs such as pollution, overfishing, unsustainable tourism, and using coral reef safe sunscreen, that way reefs are healthier and more capable of withstanding the effects of climate change, like bleaching and ocean acidification.
