Save our coral reef

Do you think individuals also can contribute in saving coral reefs together with authorities? There are many dead corals due to pollutions, global warming, carbon emissions.... Although people know that all these, very few are willing to act and save the corals. What about you lotters? What do you think can be done to improve this situation?

yes, i think there's quite a lot you can do. the three main problems facing coral reefs are pollution, climate change, and ocean acidification. you can help with all three by reducing your carbon footprint - e.g. by driving less or recycling more. also some coral is sold illegally and this doesn't help either so don't buy it.
