This coral reef in the Western Pacific Ocean was killed by human input of silt and sand from nearby islands reaching the coral reef habitat. More about coral reef ecosystems can be found in our Coral Reefs featured story.

Silt and sand should be placed somewhere else other than Coral reefs.

Who ever did this was exceedingly careless.
