EffectedWillife

A majority of the wildlife effected id fish. Because when there are no coral reefs the fish have no where to live and they have to swim away and find a different home. And when this happens some of the fish die because they cant find their way to a new coral reef.

Causes

Some of the things that cause these coral reefs to die are blast fishing.Blast fishing is when people throw bombs in the water to make an underwater explosion that kills the fish.Also people who cut coral and bleach them to sell.Also, water pollution can get into the ocean and kill the coral.

Solutions

People can stop using chemicals and letting them get to the runoff because they can spread to the ocean and kill marine wildlife.People can also stop deep sea fishing so their hook dont get caught in coral and rip it apart
