I have always been interested in sea slugs because of their intense coloring and unique lifestyle. In this project I hope to shed light on and learn more about their lifestyle and the threats they face because of coral reef pollution. I will also go into detail on the different ways in which current polluting of the coral reef populations are affecting sea slugs as well as other biota which inhabit the coral reefs.
I- Introduction to Sea Slugs
B. Physical Characteristics
II- Pollution as a threat to coral reef life
A. Types of pollution
B. Direct effects on Sea Slugs
C. What changes must be made now to save coral reef life?
