Hello and welcome to my blog on coral reefs
This site will guide you through how coral reef systems work, the many threats that they are facing, and their resillience to these changes. This site will also address ways in which Marine Protected areas may help to protect this fragile environment and why we should try to conserve it.
Most importantly why these areas are EXTREME MARINE habitats!
This video gives a quick insight and introduction (thanks to the BBC and youtube) into some of the beautiful colours of coral reefs and some of the incredible fish that can be found living there. It also shows the tip of the ice berg of the threats which this habitat has to face including over fishing of particular species and climate change.
