Divers Clean Reefs to Save Marine Life

Divers Clean Reefs to Save Marine Life | Soggy Science | Scoop.it
Aug. 28, 2014 - Artificial reefs, created by intentionally sinking ships, provide a home for marine life of all types. The sites attract fishermen and divers, who unintentionally leave trash behind, some of which is deadly to marine mammals. A team of conservation divers visits three reefs to carefully extract fishing line and anchor rope that have become entangled in ocean habitats and pose threats to turtles, dolphins, and other marine life.For more about TISIRI's reef creation and marine conservation efforts, click here.
