Reef Madness

Coral reefThe Nature Conservancy, Puntacana Ecological Foundation, the commercial venture Seascape Caribbean, and other conservationists have begun seeding Caribbean coral reefs with fast-growing coral species in hopes of reversing a trend of dying coral coverage as a result of ocean acidification and other factors.

Australian researchers reported that shallow corals in the Great Barrier Reef could reach damaging thresholds within 30 years, rather than after the end of this century as initially thought. That spells trouble for ecosystems the world over that rely on coral reefs, and by extension the biosphere of the entire planet.
