On patrol with a shark ranger in Indonesia's marine treasure trove

On patrol with a shark ranger in Indonesia's marine treasure trove | Y7 Planet Under Pressure | Scoop.it
RAJA AMPAT, Indonesia – The remote Indonesian archipelago of Raja Ampat is home to an underwater treasure trove of coral reefs and tremendous biodiversity, miles away from polluted urban centers and human encroachment.

The faraway islands in Western Papua, regarded by many marine experts as having the potential to help restore the world's ailing coral reefs, are vulnerable to the unchecked exploitation of a lucrative treasure that is rapidly disappearing from Indonesia's waters: sharks.

Hannah's curator insight, May 3, 2013 2:25 PM

Scientists have no idea what’s causing the outbreak, which they say has reached epidemic proportions, though they wonder if the coral may first been weakened by pollution, which made it more susceptible to infection. Though scientists have not found evidence that the disease may affect humans or other wildlife, if the coral dies, then all of the fish, turtles and various invertebrates that depend upon it will soon be lost, too.
