The Future

The future of coral reefs depends on the knowledge and our understanding of them. If we continue to take advantage of this ecosystem it will eventually ‘give up’ and collapse under the pressure. One way to protect reefs is through Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). These are places of protection that can be of varying degrees from no take zones, to fishing seasons and limitations on coastal developments. This section will discuss reasons for MPAs and effect they have on reef systems.
