Blog: Coral Reefs are Dying Quickly

Blog: Coral Reefs are Dying Quickly | Coral Reefs | Scoop.it
The Latest United Nations climate report is deeply disturbing because coral reefs may not be here tomorrow. Let me tell you why they are so vital. Coral reefs brim with biodiversity, which is, in fact, their ultimate strength. All of the biodiversity along coral reefs is interdependent, enabling the existence of a vibrant life-sustaining energy force.

Nicole Kearsch's curator insight, September 29, 2014 11:33 PM

Ouch, this is rough.  We know about the loss of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia but who is talking about the loss of coral reef in the Carribean?  No one, and that is a problem.  With the slow loss people don't notice, they see fish and reefs and think everything is fine when in fact years ago the amount was a great deal larger than it is now.  We need to start taking responsibility for our actions and start preventing further damage to the reef before its too late.
