Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 cean Acidification Cook Islands, Aitutaki Garbage . The island can take some of the income from tourist vacations to donate to scientific research in order to help the coral adapt to a much more acidic ocean to allow it to reproduce and flourish in a new environment. Sewage Filtration Having a weakened exoskeleton increases the vulnerability of coral reefs to storms and heavy wave action. The frequency of extreme weather events is increasing due to climate change, and corals are becoming weaker and less able to cope with stormy sea conditions, which could lead to extensive damage and local extinctions during bad weather. Increase d Causes of Ocean Acidification By making these changes, the Cook Islands can reduce their Co2 emissions and in turn stop the coral reef from decaying any farther. Solution to reduce Ocean Acidification -Ship fuel pollution and leaking-oil indusrty pollution and leaking-sewage dumps from land -tourism now dominates the economy of Aitutaki and allows islanders more than just a subsistence livelihood. -But ocean acidification and rising sea temperatures, the very stresses that threaten the tourism industry, would also damage the island and the ability of islanders to return to a subsistence livelihood. That means its just not the current way of life on Aitutaki that is threatened, it is all life. It is their home that is threatened. Decrease the Tourism Rate In order reduce the amount of garbage put out that is giving out CO2 the islanders can develop a system that separates the organic material that can be used for compost in order to remove trash put into the ocean and use it for compost to enrich the agricultural community.
