5 Critical Habitats

Life in the Sea

In the sea life is everywhere, but five habitats are like underwater cities. They are coral reefs, mangroves, salt marshes, sea grass beds and kelp forests. They provide safety, food, and a nursery for the young of many species. Yet they are in critical danger because we humans are rapidly destroying them. This programme seeks to explain why these five habitats are very important to life in the sea and to point to the fact that they are all in decline. They are being damaged by human activity... some are being cleared away for ports or housing, some are damaged by trawling nets or dredge silt, as well as pollution, overfishing, or the slow but undeniable outcomes of global warming... to name only a few of the reasons. We need to try and stop this worrying trend.
