FROLIC DEEP UNDER THE SEA
Coral reefs are hugely important for their plant and
animal biodiversity and are under threat of destruction.
Here are just a few ways you can help preserve these
- Don't use chemically enhanced pesticides and fertilizers.
They end up in watersheds which drain to a common waterway,
and ultimately find their way to the ocean. Even if you do not
live near the water, it still goes into the ground and travels.
- Recycle - it helps keep trash out of our oceans and helps
protect the water quality of our rivers that feed into the sea
- Conserve water - the less you use, the less runoff and wastewater
to find its way back to the ocean.
- Be the eyes and ears of illegal dumping. Trash that finds it way
back to our oceans threaten the health of marine animals. Beverage
containers, plastic bags, six-pack rings all kill turtles and other marine
- Spread the word.
