Lead Story Headline: Corals getting few

 

 Content:

“Patay na yung mga corals or there’s only quite a few of them left.” Thus declared marine biologist  Edwin D. Garchitorena, Ph.D. He is studying ways to rehabilitate ailing coral reefs.

Dr. Garchitorena proposes the following ways to save our coral reefs:

1.       Transplant living coral on dead and dying reefs.

2.       Restock the dead or dying reefs with giant clams.

3.       Educate the local communities to take care of giant clams.

The giant clam is a flagship species. Its presence in a reef means the reef is healthy and other organisms will survive there as well. Corals will return to life and fish will come back to feed in a healthy reef.

“As the corals grow and the giant clams grow, they will then provide shelter for a lot of organisms,” Dr. Garchitorena says. Ultimately, this will increase the fish catch, a very important food resource for Filipinos.ê
