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.
