Slide 12: DEVASTATION THE TRUTHS ABOUT MARINE HABITAT DESTRUCTION By: John Frederick S. Angulo Jonathan Lanuza Jade Stephanie Leonor Slide 13: Marine habitats The deep sea is deemed to begin at the aphotic zone, the point where sunlight loses its control of transference through the water. Intertidal zones, those areas close to shore, are constantly being exposed and covered by the ocean's tides. A huge array of life lives within this zone. Slide 14: Marine habitats Reefs comprise some of the densest and most diverse habitats in the planet. Reefs are built by corals and other calcium-depositing animals. What is habitat destruction? : Habitat destruction is the process in which natural habitat becomes purposefully incapable to support the species originally present. What is habitat destruction? In this course, plants and animals which used the spot beforehand are deposed or destroyed, therefore making biodiversity limited. THE STUDENTS SPEAK : THE STUDENTS SPEAK We asked random students from the University of the Philippines about their stances on the topic. We also asked them if they believe that industrialization has a connection to this phenomenon. Here are some of the answers. “Habitat destruction has nothing to do with industrialization. But I do not agree with habitat destruction. Capitalists destroy natural resources to earn for their own interests.” - Kim, BS Interior Design (UP Diliman) THE STUDENTS SPEAK : THE STUDENTS SPEAK “Di maiiwasan ang habitat destruction if we are aiming towards industrialization. I'm not saying that I agree with it, pero i think imposible ang industrialization kung walang habitat destruction. Necessary evil? Siguro, hahaha.” Mark, BS Nursing (UP Manila) THE STUDENTS SPEAK : THE STUDENTS SPEAK “Industrialization doesn't necessarily mean habitat destruction.... [but] as natural resources [are] sometimes found in wildlife habitats … destruction of habitats cannot be avoided. Third world countries … usually have the worst ecological conditions and habitat destruction, possibly caused by population explosion and not ... industrialization.” - Wriuz, BS Applied Physics, UP Los Baños What are some of the different forms of marine habitat destruction? : What are some of the different forms of marine habitat destruction? Cyanide fishing : Cyanide fishing It is an illegal form of fishing which usually involves sodium cyanide where the usual victims are coral polyps, young fish and spawn. This practice is usually done to catch live fish which would be used for aquariums. Dynamite fishing : It is the practice of using explosives to paralyze or kill schools of fish for effortless collection. Dynamite fishing This can be tremendously damaging to the immediate ecosystem as the explosion frequently destroy the underlying habitat that supports the fish. Slide 22: Other direct forms of marine habitat destruction are bottom trawling, coral bleaching, acidification of oceans and water pollution. Both of the aforementioned forms of marine habitat destruction are predominant in Southeast Asia, especially in the Philippines. In the 1990s, 80% of western trade in coral fishes alone came from Palawan. Estimates suggest 70 to 90% of aquarium fish exported from the Philippines are caught with cyanide. A 1999 report approximated that around 70,000 fishermen (12% of the Philippines' total fishermen) are engaged in dynamite fishing. are the solutions to this problem. : are the solutions to this problem. and whatever the changes were, Whatever the reasons are what’s important now, 1. ECOTOURISM : 1. ECOTOURISM Ecological tourism is a form of tourism that appeals to ecologically and communally aware personalities. It usually involves travel to destinations where flora, fauna, and cultural heritage are the primary attractions. However, this should strictly abide by the rules of the International Ecotourism Society. So instead of using the habitat spaces for other industries, why not use its beauty for tourist interest? 2. Stronger enforcementof protection laws for remaining intact parts of natural habitat : 2. Stronger enforcementof protection laws for remaining intact parts of natural habitat 3. Development of family planning programs in areas of rapid population growth (primarily to avoid turning habitat spots to residential areas) 4. Further educating the public about the value of environment : 4. Further educating the public about the value of environment The government officials may use different forms of mass media for information to reach everyone. The following are comic images that we made that may be means for the younger ones to understand the importance of the natural habitats. Slide 27: IN THE FUTURE, IT COULD BE POSSIBLE THAT DIVERS WOULD BE SURPRISED TO FIND FISHES UNDERWATER BECAUSE GARBAGE MAY SOON DOMINATE THE OCEANS. SO, NO LITTERING!!! Slide 28: OUR OWN STYLE OF HELPING KIDS UNDERSTAND THE VALUE OF NATURAL HABITATS HOW WOULD IT FEEL IF IN THE FUTURE, WE GET TO SWITCH PLACES WITH THE FISHES? WHAT IF THE TIME COMES WHEN ITS OUT TURN TO BE THROWN OUT OF OUR OWN HOMES? Slide 29: OUR OWN STYLE OF HELPING KIDS UNDERSTAND THE VALUE OF NATURAL HABITATS IF THE TIME COMES WHEN MOST ANIMALS ARE EXTINCT BECAUSE OF HABITAT DESTRUCTION, WOULD WE CREATE SIMILAR TOYS JUST TO REMINISCE? Slide 30: In the end, what we have to keep in mind is to appreciate the beauty of our surroundings and protect it. Wouldn’t it be nice that by time we lull our grandchildren to sleep, those butterflies and clownfish are still present on our planet Earth? By: John Frederick S.
