Take passengers out on a boat to the reef and then let them scuba dive.
Possible jobs include actual scuba diver instructors, people to drive the boat, and then people who run the company.
The scuba diving company is also in partially in charge of keeping the reef alive and well.
They also employ scientists to monitor the reef and keep it healthy.
On a daily basis they wake up open their doors and have a few dives per day where they take customers out and go on dives. They also do trainingthroughout the day as well.
There is two main stations. One on the water and one on land where they do their work from.
The Problem- Why Did the Coral Bleach
Some of the corals dying can be linked to rising temperatures due to global warming. When the water is too warm the corals expel the algae living in their tissues making them lose all of their color and turn white. When they bleach they do not die, they are just put under a lot of stress and are more vulnerable to death.
Some corals grow in deep, cold water where the sunlight can barely reach, which they’re not a fan of(you know, they need sunlight radiation), while some coral happen to be growing in the shallow, hot, low tides area, where there’s more than enough sunlight to receive(looks like someone’s having a “sunburn” from having too much sunlight). Other causes of bleaching are pollution and change in water salinity.
Try walking, biking or taking public transportation instead of driving. Plant a tree and support forest conservation! Trees store carbon and reduce agricultural runoff, which may ultimately end up in the ocean. Contact your local legislators, and tell them you support comprehensive climate legislation.
Real World Application
The real world application of this is to have a person, specifically a business owner who deals with the environment, to be able to recognise the changes and impacts that their company has on the surrounding flora and fauna.
