Coral reefs at risk from human activities

Year: 2005
From collection: General archive
Author: Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Population growth and technology: operating together these two factors account for the major causes of coral reef decline - excessive domestic and agricultural waste pouring into ocean waters, poor land-use practices that increase sedimentation of rivers and then of reefs, and over-exploitation of reef resources, often in combination with practices such as harvesting with dynamite and poison, all degrade reefs.
