-Conserve water (less water used, less runoff and wastewater will pollute our oceans)

-Help reduce pollution (walk, bike, or ride to school)

-Switch to organic fertillizers! (even if you live thousands of miles from a coral reef ecosystem, the products can flow into the water, pollute the ocean, and then can harm the coral reefs)

-Dispose of your trash properly! (DO NOT leave any trash or fishing lines on the beach; this can harm the fish and the reefs)

-Plant a tree (trees reduce runoff into the ocean. This will also help with reversing the warming of the planet)
