Some Brief Notes on Marine Life in Coral Reefs, and a Few Puzzles

Today is World Oceans Day. A quick visit to the United Nations page about it informs us that oceans produce at least half the oxygen on our planet, while absorbing about 30% of the carbon dioxide released in the atmosphere. They are also home to about 15% of the Earth’s species.

Unfortunately, coral reefs are suffering because of climate change, pollution, overfishing, and other factors. And coral reefs are important because a quarter of the organisms in the world’s oceans depend on them—and then half a billion people depend on these reefs for food and livelihood, and for protection from storms and coastline erosion.

To raise awareness of the important and beauty of coral reefs, I made several puzzles for kids.
