Disappearing coral reef has offshore and onshore impact
LANTANA, Fla. -- South Florida's coral reef is disappearing at an alarming rate. But you may not realize just how important it is to the area.
The coral reef located just a mile off Palm Beach County could be going extinct according to a recent government report, and that has an impact on everybody that lives down here.
"People don't realize that there's a Coral Reef here in Palm Beach County."
Not just a coral reef, but the third longest coral reef that stretches all the way down to the dry tortugas. A living, breathing thing, that faces extinction by the end of the century.
But what's killing it over the past 20 years? Ed Tichenor of Palm Beach County's Reef Rescue says a number of things from run-off pollution, divers dragging anchors along it, to beach renourishment projects.
"You get a lot of silt going out on the coral, it smothers the coral reefs and that's what a lot of the fights you hear about beach renourishment projects come from."
What makes this delicate aquatic life so important to South Florida? Lets start with the economy. The reef's ecosystem brings in big tourism bucks. An estimated $6 billion annually.
"Florida competes for the diving tourist dollars as well as fishing tourist dollars with the Caribbean, the Cayman Islands, and Belize. If there's not a reef and productive fishing to come to, tourists will go elsewhere."
And then there's the protection. Tichenor says these reefs offer us from storm surge and long term beach erosion. Take them away, and we may be opening ourselves up for big problems during future hurricanes.
"The big waves that come in during the hurricanes are broken down by the coral reef. Without the coral reef, the surge would come right over the barrier island."
Doing damage to reef, if caught, comes only with a $150 fine according to Tichenor. If our coral reef is added to the endangered species list, that fine goes up to $10,000 mainly because it's very slow to recover.
So, 20 years worth of damage to the coral reef, could take centuries to rebuild.
