Experience “Coral Farming” in Kunigami Village, Okinawa!

Do you know which of the following is coral? He asked me… I had no idea.🤔
(1) Animals
(2) Plants
(3) Minerals
To conclude my answer, I was given the opportunity to experience “coral cultivation” in Kunigami Village, Okinawa.
Corals are declining year by year.
Humanity’s dependence on fossil fuels causes global warming. Coral bleaches and dies out as sea temperatures rise…😞
In the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest coral reef, half has disappeared compared to 1995.
The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) predicts that if the international community continues its dependence on fossil fuels, the world will continue to depend on fossil fuels. Coral reefs will die by 034.
A quarter of all sea life makes coral its home, and extinction would eliminate the majority of marine life. Corals also absorb carbon dioxide and hold back as much carbon dioxide as a tropical rainforest.
When coral disappears, fish disappear and the ocean dies. It is no exaggeration to say that coral holds the fate of the earth in its hands.
So this time, we gathered at Hedona Fishing Port in Kunigami Village to learn about coral cultivation!
First, after studying basic knowledge of coral with the children on the boat, they experienced making coral plants. Gently break a piece of coral and tie it tightly to a stone. We go to a coral cultivation field, about 5 minutes away by boat, and divers plant the coral on the sea bottom. We snorkeled and observed the process together.
I hope this will help increase the number of corals, even if only a little. Corals have been affected not only by global warming, but also by the diving boom, which has caused people and There is a lot of damage. Let’s be careful.
《Answer》 Well, what is coral? Answer for.
What an animal!
Corals branch out like trees and look like plants, but they are actually animals.
A member of the sea anemone and jellyfish family, it is classified as a cnidarian (luminal animal).
