Coral reef ...


In Indonesia that surrounding by seas, we can find so many areas that have corals reef. There are some of kind beautiful places to visit in Indonesia like in Bali, Laut Banda in east area Indonesia. Now days the corral reef in Indonesia the damaged an it make the amount of the coral in Indonesia is decreasing for example in karang lestari,pemutaran bali .President Megawati Sukarno Putri said at the International Coral Reef Symposium in October 2000 in Bali that around 94% of Indonesia's coral reefs were already severely damaged. The large-scale destruction of coral habitat has made recovery of fish populations impossible until damaged coral reef areas are restored. Recent work in Pemuteran, Bali has shown that coral reefs can be quickly restored and fish populations greatly increased using new methods that speed up the growth of corals, oysters, abalone, and clams, and create new habitat for fishes, crabs, octopus and other forms of sea life (http:global coral.com).


Coral reef can damaged because ;precipitation in sea, catching the fish with improperly ways, garbage, earthquake,sea animal that called Bulu seribu. The cause of natural disaster like earthquake, we can not prevent it but cause of human we can handle. Some organizations focus to help coral reef in Indonesia like Yayasan Terangi in Indonesia. Yayasan Terangi suggest ssome ways to help our coral reefs. We can help our coral also by not buy or collect the souvenir that made from coral reef, not touch or take the coral reef when diving, diver has to becareful with their spin or their tube that can touch and break the coral reef, not catch the fish with poison and we can give support by join organization that focus to help seas environtment.
