back to before things are getting harder and harder fishing isn't the same as it used to be here business is really bad morning. family day at 1st glance this looks like a decent cottage but 10 years ago it would have been twice the size. the reason lies here the entire coast of the dominican republic is lined with coral reefs around 90 percent of them to be the daiichi or severely damaged. the water temperature is rising because of climate change this makes the corals weaker and more vulnerable to pollution and human activity. this is how everything looks about the surface. amounts tourism.
3:46 pm
the country attracts 6 and a half 1000000 visitors every year the tourism industry consumes huge amounts of resources and takes its toll on the wildlife. ironically it's destroying the things that many tourists come for in the 1st place. i think adam is going it over that hardly anyone knows the worst part about 80 percent of the typical white sands of the caribbean are actually the white skeletons of coral neverland that. and if we don't have healthy reefs and we don't have healthy corals we're in danger of losing all these beautiful things even the white sands and that in the very places where tourism is the main source of income i last saw him as on then thought he must like i said laughing that's one thing that us. marine biologist samantha mascot is working to preserve the reefs. in the lab
3:47 pm
she prints corals for experimental purposes. that later be transferred to every. asset as we discover that a coral grows faster if it's divided up into small fragments rather than left in one big piece of a gas c s that i think that mine and my you know it uses this disc like a prosthesis and the coral wraps itself around it as if it were its own skeleton and they're not going the distance of. the corals can grow up to 10 centimeters a year using this method up to 4 times faster than they would in nature. the star for me is the alligator and sound from them on a daily basis. it's usually several months before they're ready to be released into the sea. the lapis financed by a group of investors who i know grange of hotels in the country german grants also help to fund. the picking up people matter i think then we can see which

species are most resistant to hire a mo temperatures. or to low sunlight or to other parameters like an excess of nutrients for example when it's going out and. other species of coral require different breeding methods. several times a week samantha and her colleagues take a bite out to the coral gardens they've planted in the open sea. that whatever that we couldn't get the coral we're working with today is called staghorn car and it used to be the dominant species here. so it's really sad when you think about it but we're transplanting coral in places that used to be covered in it. with a hammer and some pliers and hand they plunge 4 metres below the surface. grit . once the tentacles have reached

15 centimeters they can be broken off we said just use them to hope restore the destroyed reef. the growth of the corals is precisely documented. the tentacles are literally nailed to the remaining $9000.00 corals have been attached to the reef site from about 70 percent of them have survived. it's a success for the team but they maintain that we should be acting proactively rather than reactively. about 25 percent of the world's marine life depends on coral reefs . let us the motorist out and we have restore the reef but if we don't change our mindset if we don't start using less
3:50 pm
plastic if we don't start using detergents that contain less fossil for its thing than that and if we don't start recycling better. than all our work here won't make that much difference and that off oil out of our essay on basket of course. the team hopes to expand that work over the coming years they want to restore more reefs and extend marine protections. but the continued growth of tourism will inevitably pose a challenge. as you make your way from a to b. in many cities around the world chances are your movements are being tracked one study suggests that there are already at around 770000000 surveillance cameras in operation worldwide those in favor say cameras help lower crime rates others warn that they're slowly eroding. personal freedom despite such consensus video
