English Abstract

This study considers the effects of both conservation fund accumulation and environmental education activity, then discusses how to promote coral reef conservation. This work finds that imposing coral reef conservation fees not only corrects the budgetary shortage of the government, but also accumulates knowledge on coal reef conservation. Based on the above results, this study makes the following suggestions conservation policy: (1) increase to monitor the growth rate of coral reefs and assess the influence of eco-tourism on coral reef degradation; (2) understand the coral reef ecosystem interaction effect, and value the externality benefits associated with coral reefs which can be used to optimize conservation fees; (3) increase to assess the coral reef conservation accumulation effect, then establish the correct threshold conservation fund level for coral reef, to increase the effect of the conservation; (4) Establishing valid usage mechanisms for the conservation fund, such as mixing with the implementation of coral reef ecosystem education, to promote long-term preservation of coral reef stock.
