Even though the reef tank "ark" concept isn't generally viable there are real conservation benefits to the hobby

- Reefers get to witness behaviours, experiment and observe in a closed environment. These types of observations are difficult in the wild and have led to important discoveries.

- Public and private aquariums have an enormous educative impact and generate advocacy for the worlds oceans.

- Simple economics. The aquarium trade is such that there is an economic imperative to maintain and rehabilitate wild habitats.
