We are in complete agreement with you. How come in modern life still
allowing sewage going to coral reefs?

According to the theory of change, it is necessary first to invest in
projects that may reduce causes of degradación to implement
sustainable development
by avoiding further ocean pollution and local coral destruction in order
 to allow coral reef recovery before promessing saving coral reefs. There
is not time to ignore science. All need to act now.to enforce effective
coral reef protection.

More coral reef scientist are needed to provide recommendations like the
ones you mentioned. Videos should show that still exists resilient coral
reefs and strongly recommend that local and global causes of degradation
should be tackled. Otherwise, money will go to shadow (justifiers)
 projects that allow for example dredging, hotels and cruises that pollute
water, and sewage from large concentration of people going to coral reefs.
