The destruction in coral reefs are usually caused by human activities, diseases and climate change. Human activities such as over-fishing, destructive fishing practices and pollutions from pesticides and herbicides. Examples of diseases would be black band disease, white band disease and other band related diseases which are a type of fungus. Climate change is the largest cause of the loss of coral reefs.

Consuming vegetation as the main source of food in our daily lives is in fact harmful to our environment and ourselves. The amount of genetically modified organisms in our food is not only unnatural, which is what fruits and vegetables are supposed to be, but while we spray our crops with pesticides, it is killing all the micro-organisms in the soil. Intensely farmed crops like soy and corn that are often genetically modified to keep away pesticides are given to animals in their feed.
