Finally the law needs to be changed to better protect the whales and dolphins. To conclude Japan’s whaling should be abolished before it bring harm to our earth. Japan has a very cruel method to kill the whales. Whaling has been illegal since 1986 but japan gets around the law by saying that are killing for research. According to research the catch limit is five times over a safe limit an example (kurtenbach).
The Sea Empress oil spill and the BP oil spill have had major damages to their environment. In both cases, different species have been killed and endangered because of the now polluted waters. Industries, such as the fishing industries, have been closed down because of the oil flowing through the water. However, the cleanup process for both spills were drastically different, and it lead to a completely different result. For the Sea Empress spill, people were dedicated to the cleaning up straight away, whereas in the BP spill, the company just neglected it and resorted to ignorant tactics such as throwing garbage in the sea in hope for it to suck up the oil, which didn’t work as they had hoped.
This is because the corals can feel this slight change and will start to feel stressed, and their first natural reaction is to expel their symbiotic zooxanthellae since this algae is not a part of them. The corals at this stage are now hopeless without their symbiotic partner, and will not be able to survive without oxygen and food. The now starving corals will turn into a ghostly white and perish. Since humans need healthy coral reefs to be able to get fish, it makes sense that they would want to protect the reefs. But instead, overfishing and destructive fishing has become another threat to the marine ecosystem.
If you see trash, remove it from the area. Out on the ocean, make sure to bring your litter back on land to be thrown out properly. Don 't Buy Coral Souvenirs When you refuse to buy the souvenirs, you 're doing your part to keep the coral safe. When there 's no demand for this type of souvenir, people will stop destroying the coral reefs to mine the coral for production. It can take years for one piece of coral to grow back after someone has broken it off the reef.
Imagine a lush underwater place. Beautiful structures colorful animals and places that would never have been thought of before. In reality that's not what it really looks like, really the ocean is a desolate place that is barren like a desert. Many marine species have been lost by as much as 49%. (seeker) A big part of that reason is because of coral bleaching which causes as stated above a decline in species that depend on the coral as there home.
Coral reefs need better protection. In the Cayman Islands coral reefs are on the decline and are slowly dissolving away and need better treatment than what is currently in place. Large portions of coral reefs have been devastated from a variety of people and cruise lines due to carelessness. Coral reefs needs a better safeguard because without them the current path it is taking will have a terrible effect on the fish who make their habitats in the coral, creating a negative effect on the ecosystem. Coral reefs are beautiful ecosystems that resemble a living museum.
Disease affecting the corals has become a problem recently as well as aquatic invasive species. Coral reef destruction is seen in all the oceans where coral reefs are present, some are restoring better than others. Marine Protected areas help our oceans to rejuvenate themselves naturally and strongly improve the oceans marine life health. Areas where the marine life is protected, allows it to grow and multiply in population and diversity. Coral reefs in the flower banks garden are in good condition today due to conservation efforts but without them they would be losing health rapidly, and we would lose many important spawnin... ... middle of paper ... ...orthwest Hawaiian Islands are remote and uninhabited allowing for monitoring short term and long term evidence of the declining health of coral reefs.
The ocean is very mysterious, there is much knowledge that the world does not even know about the ocean. Historically, ocean pollution has always been a tremendous problem but each year it increases drastically. Trash is really hurting not only the ocean but also ocean life environment. Ships can release oil spills into the ocean that can drastically hurt animal life. There are many of organizations attempting to help stop all of this trash from affecting more the world.
Small prey eat the plastic, then predators eat the prey and the plastic is consumed and the predator might die. Ocean pollution hurts both land and ocean, it hurts them by ruining the animal's habitat and it might ruin more important things. If we trash more and more we might not eat fish because the fishes might eat the plastic then they might die and if we pollute more the population of fish will get smaller. Help the ocean by recycling and not using a lot of trash because if you keep throwing trash then we might live in trash. About 85% of the world's oceans have
Slightest alternations in the water can cause corals to become ill and die. The consequences of coral extinction still remains unsolved, however, many scientists fear that the lost of reefs will lead many reef dependent organisms to extinction as well. Corals lay the foundation of the reef trophic and system, thus making the reef system vulnerable to coral diseases... ... middle of paper ... ...failure. Although corals are hermaphroditic, self-fertilization does not occur successfully. Therefore, gametes need to travel from one colony to another for successful reproduction.
