The Dying Reef

Pollution and Global Warming

Pollution causes water contamination. It also fills the reef with rubbish and human waste which will choke the fish. Human waste directly destroys the health and stability of the reefs ecosystem.

Furthermore, human also impact on the environment by releasing toxic gas to the air causing the change in temperature. This means the water also gets warmer and the cold water fish might die.
