Confronting Coral Reef Crisis
After you read the article (Wrecking the Reefs, Time, 9/30/96) you are going to design an experiment to preserve the coral reefs. Your group is going to have to present your experiment to the class. You must come up with not only the experiment but the way in which you plan to carry out the experiment, and also the time frame in which you would like to see some progress.
Questions you should be ready to answer. How are going to accomplish this task? How much money do you think this will cost? Are you going to endanger any animals in the process of trying to save the coral reef, or are you going to be saving animals? Tell which ones in either case.
As a class we will choose the best experiment that we would carry out if this were to go into the experimental stages.
As always please remember to cite your information for me.
