Giving Nature a Voice – Season 01 Episode 04

Synopsis

Underwater Treasures

Coral Reefs are one of the most bio diverse ecosystems on the planet, hosting as many species as tropical rainforests. Their bio-mass is so high because of the variety of fish and algae they shelter. They also protect the coastline from destructive waves. But coral reefs are being degraded at an alarming rate from climate change, fishing and pollution. Kenya’s Wildlife Service must find a way to reduce the stress coral reefs are subjected to, while working with local communities to insure their survival.
