Coral Reefs in Increasing Trouble



The Australian Institute of Marine Science has published a paper today showing a fourteen percent drop in coral growth on the Great Barrier Reef since 1990. The paper appears in the journal Science. The abstract can be found here.

We are in a new year and awaiting a new administration. Lets take the current opportunity for investment as a way to start remediating these problems.

There are various NGOs that are addressing these issues directly including the World Wildlife Fund, Reef Relief, Global Coral Reef Alliance and many others.
