Cute Animation Explains Coral Reefs (Video)

By Jaymi Heimbuch, TreeHugger

World Resources Institute has created a great short video that explains what coral reefs are, why they’re so important, and the threats we’re posing to their health.

It’s a wonderful introduction to the range of problems facing reefs and the range of solutions we have at our fingertips. It’s perfect for school kids — indeed, every teacher could take this video up as a tool for instructing kids on ocean biology, environmental issues, and social activism.

If you have anyone in your life who isn’t yet aware of the value of coral reefs and how they can help, this short is an excellent discussion starter.

I agree...this should be used in all the schools. It would also make a great informative commercial for tv.
