THERE IS A
risk for corals to get a disease when it comes into contact with plastic
Even though our coral reefs only cover less than 1% of the oceans, they are home to more than 25% of all marine species. The coral reefs are vital to maintaining the health and stability of our ecosystem.
A study shows that plastic trapped in coral reefs is having a serious impact on coral health and possibly killing corals. If plastic gets in contact with corals it increases the likelihood of diseases from 4 % to 89%. Half of the world’s coral reefs are already dead and all of them could be gone by 2050.
PLASTIC POLLUTION IS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS WHY OUR CORAL REEFS ARE DYING, AS ALL THE PLASTIC LITTERING OUR OCEANS PREVENT/BLOCK THE CORALS FROM SUNLIGHT AND OXYGEN WHICH ARE VITAL FOR THEM TO SURVIVE.
