Why do government and non-government organizations give protection to coral reefs?
because the obligation of the government is to protect the coral reefs like the DENR,non government also protect it because some people like fisherman caught fish.........if there are no coral reefs there would be no fishes anymore in the ocean....................
Coral reefs should be protected since they provide protection and shelter for many different species of fish. Damaging coral reefs makes such fish species homeless to live and no where to breed. And more important that coral reefs controlcarbon dioxide in the ocean water. They also protect coasts from strong currents and waves by acting as a barrier between ocean and shore by slowing down the water.
because their called SEA TUTRLES! That was the last answer, to which I say, "Hey, answer the question and stop trying to be funny!" Sea turtles live in coral reefs because they provide protection and camouflage. Many sea turtles also eat things like shrimp and jellyfish, which live in the shallow-ocean zone, as coral does. Feel free to improve.
The Great Barrier Reef contains around 600 species of coral, consisting of both hard corals and soft corals. The most common hard coral is the Staghorn coral, but there are also brain coral, plate coral, elkhorn coral, tabletop coral, mushroom coral, needle coral and luna coral. Soft corals include elephant ear coral, cauliflower coral, weeping coral, fan coral and sea whips.
