restore your community's economy and environment

Assume that you are the mayor of a coastal town where some residents are employed as commercial fishers and others make a living serving ecotourists who come to snorkel and scuba-dive at the nearby coral reef.

In recent years, several fish stocks have crashed and ecotourism is dropping off as fish disappear from the increasingly degraded reef.

Scientists are urging you to help establish a marine reserve around portions of the reef, but most commercial and recreational fishers are opposed to this idea.

What steps would you take to restore your community's economy and environment?
