The global decline of coral reefs: Is there hope for recovery?
from IEAM Blog
During the past few decades, coral reefs — the rainforests of the sea — have been declining at an alarming rate around the world. The threats faced by these extremely diverse and fragile ecosystems are numerous and difficult to control. In addition to weather-related damage, pollution, ocean acidification, coral mining, disease, overfishing and destructive fishing practices, coral reefs are subjected to the negative effects of global warming — increasing sea surface temperatures lead to coral bleaching, a process that makes corals become bone white and often die.
