Kenyan divers are planting coral by anchoring them to the ocean floor they are hoping to replace coral reefs that have been destroyed. In addition to improving coral reefs, locals have also benefitted from increase in tourism and fish.
The UN Environmental Body says the world has lost half of its coral reefs in the last 30 years. It blames human activity such as overfishing, oil drilling, tourism, coastal development and pollution.
But some communities along Kenya's coast have found ways to lessen the damage while other communities are improving the state of the countries Mangrove swamps.
