store, tour operators, hotel, and other coastal businesses are doing to
save the coral reefs. This is especially important in coastal areas with
reefs. Let them know you are an informed consumer and care about reefs.

do what many people do with their vacations: visit a coral reef. Spend an
afternoon enjoying the beauty of one of the world's treasures while
helping to preserve it for future generations.
Learn more about coral reefs. How many different species live in
reefs? What new medicines have been discovered in reef organisms.

ecology. When you further your own education, you can help others
understand the fragility and value of the world's coral reefs.
