The marine ecosystem plays an important role in the marine environment. Considering the fact that the marine ecosystems also have their effects on human existence, the need for protecting the marine environment, specifically the coral reefs, is crucial in the environmental protection jurisprudence. Over a million species depend on coral reefs for their survival, and coral reefs are a crucial part of the ecosystem for hundreds of thousands of people living in the tropics and subtropics. Moreover, millions around the world benefit from their socio-economic stability. However, fishing pressure, coastal development, pollution, and, most crucially, human-induced climate change have all posed a threat to the marine ecology, including the corals that live there. As a result, corals, a critically important ecological resource, are in jeopardy, and the ramifications of their extinction are far-reaching. In this regard, the paper has been apportioned into three sections. The first section sets out the tone by detailing the coral reefs and their impact on the marine ecosystem. The second segment of this paper examines and evaluates the implementation of the laws in protecting the environment. The final portion delves into summarizing the possible outcomes of this paper with suggestions.
