Hello, My name is Christina Craner and I am a senior at Oakland High School. I live in Oakland California, and am apart of the Environmental Science Academy at Oakland High. This Academy focuses on the environment and the affects we have on our world. Being apart of ESA has motivated me more to become a Marine Biologist. I want to help save coral reefs from pollution. This is my dream career and goal. I plan to attend Hawaii Pacific University and peruse a degree in Marine Biology so I can help save these beautiful marine ecosystems. I want to help make a change in our world.

So I’d love to visit here to explore the beautiful coral reefs depicted, but that doesn’t look very possible.
I wish that Indonesia’s government would try to help with the growing number of illegal fishermen who use explosives and cyanide to kill and stun their prey. Do the fishermen even realize what they are doing to the underwater landscape? Do they realize howthey are affecting so many more organisms than just their prey and coral?
Action clearly needs to be taken against these fishermen and their crimes that are changing a once-beautiful travel stop.
Coral Reefs are depleting in result of careless human interaction. The largest problem is that people are destroying reefs by bottom trawling. This scraps the ocean floor and destroys many habitats for other organisms. Also, pollution is a large issue. The most common is oil spills and carelessness of trash dumping.
Coral Reefs are dying off due to human activities such as: oil spills, bottom trawling, and blasting of harbors. It is truly a spectacle and the more coral reefs die off, the more fish will die off because there shelter is destroyed. The more we use natural resources the more we kill the resources overuse is possible.
