Go to the ReefBase website or Exploring Nature website to look at a map of the worlds coral reefs. Write a paragraph to describe the distribution of the world’s coral reefs. Make sure you include as much evidence from the map and your own knowledge to do this. e.g. Hemisphere, latitude and longitude, ocean names and direction.
Use Google Earth to find the location of Menjangan Island, Bali. Produce a sketch/diagram or a number of different scale maps to show its location in the planet (include world, national and local scale).
Now you are going to produce a case study of the Menjangan Island and reef. It will look particularly at the human and physical impacts on the reef, management of activities in Menjangan and the role of the ‘Friends of Menjangan’.
To do this, you have been given an activities sheet with a number of tasks and questions. Work in pairs to explore the area of study, its uses, exploitation and information on climate, using the ‘Menjangan Island virtual fieldtrip’ PowerPoint and the links from it to website resources.
As you explore the area, you must answer the questions given. Remember, this is a case study, so extracting and using relevant facts and figures is important. You will be able to make use of these in your exam.
