Yaeyama reefs found dying

Date Posted: 2001-07-07

An emergency joint research conducted by World Wide Fund Japan, Ministry of Environment and Yaeyama Coral Reef Conservation Conference discovered late June that a large number of corals around Shiraho area in Ishigaki are dying because of red soil pollution.

Members of WWFJ have issued a warning that the situation is at its worst since 1989, when the organization started its regular research in the area. Officials involved in the research say that the area is covered with two to five centimeters of red soil and most of seaweed was also found dead. Local fishermen who reported that there was something wrong with coral early last month alerted WWFJ representatives.
