How Humans are Impacting the Coral Reef

Negative:

Chemical Pollution which messes with the reproduction and growth rate of fish and other organisms in the ocean.

Another one is over fishing which decreases the fish population.

And tourists who aren't very familiar with the environment and end up damaging it.


Positive:

Marine park zoning it preserves the habitat for all the organisms in the habitat.

And artificial reefs, they fix and help damaged coral reefs.
