Coral reefs

Important and very fragile!
Coral reefs are the kindergarten of most fish
BSB Conservation education online: coral reef fish are beautiful, colorful, endangered species of the food chain in Earth's oceans -  coral conservation is essential for human food
coral reefs are beautiful, part of the food chain in Earth's oceans -  understand why coral conservation is essential for human life
Coral reefs on Earth are endangered by ocean acidification!

Coral reefs are beautiful + a very important factor in the food chain of Earth's oceans.
Coral reefs are the 'kindergarten" of 60% of all ocean fish
Imagine people having no sea food anymore...

Coral is primarily Calcium carbonate  = chemically CaCO3

Calcium carbonate is found in rock in all parts of Earth. Coral reefs, shells of marine organisms, snails, pearls, and eggshells contain mostly Calcium carbonate.
Calcium carbonate is altered by acids, releasing carbon dioxide CO2

How coral reefs have been formed

Coral reefs polyps secret CaCO3 building underwater structures, we call reefs.
On these structures live tiny animals, we call coral polyps. Looking at a coral reef one can barely see these hundreds, thousands of life forms that live together in huge groups. Coral reefs are found in warm, shallow, unpolluted, sunny and oxygen rich waters.

Some call Coral reefs the rainforests of the sea, because they are one of the most diverse ecosystems on Earth. Growing on about one percent of Earth's ocean area, they provide a habitat for over a quarter of all marine species, as fishes, mollusks, echinoderms and many different varieties of sponges.
BSB coral protection to conserve humans food. Conservation education online: coral reefs home a big variety of fish and marine life balancing with their biodiversity the food chain in Earth's oceans. Join BSB to learn why BSB coral conservation is essential for human life

Great Barrier Reef Australia is the largest coral reef
Belize Barrier Reef is 2nd
New Caledonia Barrier Reef 2nd longest double barrier
Andros, Bahamas Barrier Reef is 3rd largest.
Red Sea Coral Reef is number 4
Pulley Ridge, Florida is the deepest photosynthetic coral reef
Many reefs are scattered over the Maldives

Wildlife Conservation marine biologists report May temperature far above average. Sumatra island surface waters peaked at 93 degrees Fahrenheit = 34 degrees Celsius — a 7 degree Fahrenheit = 4 degree Celsius rise over long-term averages. The consequence:
Coral reefs in Asia are dying in an alarming rate.
BSB conservation education online: dead coral, skeleton of an animal that took or a very long time period to form
That's what a dead coral looks like
only the skeleton remains

Coral need a long time to grow, they are ancient life forms, found in all warm oceans on Earth.
BUT all around Earth Coral reefs are dying

Do you know what happens if they disappear altogether?
Coral reefs are part of Earth's oceans food chain. About 50 % of fish we eat lives around coral reefs. Over a billion humans depend on food out of the ocean, or they starve to death.
Do you think these people will die quietly?

Our research and the studies of many scientists blame climate change as a main reason for the deaths of Earth coral reefs.
Coral reef killers are:
1) Pollution - carbon dioxide
   acidification of ocean water
2) Higher ocean temperatures
3) Man-made chemicals
4) Unsustainable coastal development
5) Bottom-dragging fishing boats
6) Coral trade in jewelry + souvenirs

Over a fifth of Earth's coral reefs are dead. In the Caribbean are more dead than alive corals. It is quite possible that your grand children will not enjoy the beauty of corals.
Human enjoyment is a very small problem compared with the tremendous cascade effect for all life in Earth's oceans.
coral reefs are cities of coral polyps, creating a special environment, a marine habitat that support a huge biodiversity of life
Exotic and colorful, coral reefs are not just rocks - they are built up by living creatures, called coral polyps that excrete a hard calcium carbonate exoskeleton. When these animals die, and their rocky structures erode, much of the coral marine life dies too, no more spawning, no more feeding habitats.
Fish we eat as the Grouper and Snapper will get extinct, oysters, clams and other creatures eaten by many would also suffer.
BSB Conservation education online: sharks are found in coral reefs, part of an intact food chain, balancing marine life
The livelihood of fishermen would go down badly.
Seafood will become a luxury good, not affordable to normal people, adding over a billion humans facing hunger.
Earth's food security will be threatened, and the economic damage would be enormous.

Think about reef visiting tourists, scuba divers, snorkelers, seaside resorts, sea food restaurants - all lose their income.
Or think about the types of coral and marine species that are being used by the pharmaceutical industry who needs healthy coral reefs to develop possible cures for cancer, arthritis, dementia.
Coral reefs are precious sources of food, medicine and livelihoods for billions of humans. They are also special places of renewal and recreation. With their exotic beauty and biodiversity, we should protect coral reefs as global treasures.
BSB conservation education info: dying coral reef, learn online about nature conservation, update your nature education
Another very ancient life form that is part of many coral reefs are

Stromatolites

They grow in shallow water by trapping, binding, and cementation of sedimentary grains. A biofilm of microorganisms Cyanobacteria is cementing these grains together to form blocks.
Cyanobacteria are responsible for increasing the amount of oxygen in the primeval Earth's atmosphere through their continuing photosynthesis. They use water, carbon dioxide CO2, and sunlight to create their food.
The byproducts of this process are oxygen and calcium carbonate = lime.

Live in Harmony with Nature + Learn to understand Nature!

Loosing the physical protection of a coral reef is another big problem for many countries. When coral reefs deteriorate, ocean waves cause more damage to coast lines.

It is really amazing to see how Nature provides balance to all life on Earth. How can we get humans to learn and understand?
Mother Nature has a great plan - humans just have learned a few bits of it.

BSB quiz question, educational games - water quiz - fresh water quiz - ocean water quiz questions - What percentage of the world is covered by water - What percentage of the world's water is readily available for humans to use? - How much water is contained in the human body? -Which contains more water as a percentage of body weight, a woman's or a man's body? - Why do male and female bodies tend to have different amounts of water? - How much water does the human body lose in a typical day? - Why is water especially good for people on a diet? - What is the largest use of water indoors? - Public water systems produce billions of gallons of drinking water every day, more than 180 gallons per person - What percentage of that is consumed by people? -  How much of a chicken is water? - How much of a pineapple is water? - Quiz How much of a tomato is water? -Quiz How much of an elephant is water? - Quiz How much of an ear of corn is water? - Some 80% of the world is covered by water or ice Only about 20% is dry land - 97% of the water on earth is salty ocean and 2% is frozen.  The remaining 1% is available to meet human needs. If you're an adult, your body contains about 40 quarts or 10 gallons of water - A man's body is 60-65% water.  A woman's is 50-60% water - The human brain is about 75% water - Muscle tissue contains a large amount of water - Fat tissues contain virtually no water.  Men tend to have more muscle as a percentage of body weight while women have more fat - You lose 2.5 to 3 quarts of water per day through normal elimination, sweating and breathing - If you exercise or live in a humid climate, you may lose another quarter - It has zero calories and zero sugar, but a good drink of water can reduce hunger - Water also helps your body metabolize stored fats, helps maintain proper muscle tone, and helps rid the body of wastes - Lawn sprinkling uses the most water outdoors. Inside, toilets use the most, with an average of 27 gallons per person per day. Laundry averages 17 gallons per person per day and showers 14 gallons. Typically, less than 1% of the treated drinking water produced by utilities is actually consumed by people - Most goes for lawns, showers and tubs, toilets

Mexico environmental problems include not enough affordable nature conservation education to expand food production - Spain offers to little conservation education courses - members from Argentina help to spread the word of nature conservation, nature education - - Indonesia cuts down a lot of tree. Missing nature conservation education leads to deforestation, water contamination, erosion problems because of deforestation, endangering marine life and humans - China has a growing population, more energy, more food, nature conservation education is very low on the to do list - German schools offer conservation education, but a lot of people are too busy to learn new things

BSB recycling facts: Recycling to save resources! All raw materials and all energy are provided by our blue planet Earth, but they are NOT endless. Unfortunately, most of the provided raw materials + energy are not usable as they appear in Nature and are spread globally in deposits. Men need to use a lot of energy + resources to produce the materials we need. We have to collect, clean, concentrate, and transform these resources to generate primary raw materials that are usable for people and industry. Using recycled materials reduces the amount of energy + reduces the amount of materials we have to dig out! Most of all things we use can be recycled!
