Scientists and marine biologists have proven that coral is being destroyed rapidly. Soon, there will be no more of this wonderful animal. They are covering only 0.17% of the ocean floor. Coral is home to 25% of all marine species, yet it's population has already decreased by 50%, and 60% of that is caused by humans. People, mainly tourists, are cutting off coral as souvenirs. Coral has many benefits from food to medicine. However, global warming, coral bleaching, and destructive fishing practices etc. are damaging the coral. In 93 countries, coral is threatened. We are trying to prevent the coral reefs from being completely demolished.We want to pass a law to protect the coral from harm. Our law consists of a fine for people destroying and taking coral. The fine will be 75% of the coral's value, because some coral is more valuable than others. Please help us by signing our petition and be moral with the coral! Thank you!
