Many resorts are pledging their efforts to start doing more to support the coral reefs. The reefs are becoming more and more endangered as the years go on, but luckily some new programs have popped up in an effort to support them.
One of those programs is a program called Outrigger’s Ozone which is being run by a dive team and a marine biologist named Caterina Fattori. A New York Times report explained the program.
“Outrigger’s Ozone began in June 2015, joining a number of other resorts working to undo the reef damage caused by large structures on the beach, climate change, land-based pollution and the impact of fishing.”
Visitors to the resorts can also get involved in the projects, through learning about the coral reefs in workshops or even helping to plant new coral and clean up the existing reefs.
