Yes, the long-term trend shows that the oceans have become warmer since 1955 (NOAA). Coral reefs around the world are vanishing at an unprecedented rate. The Netflix film Chasing Coral documents the bleaching of a coral reef. Is there anything that can be done? Yes, there are ways you can help --
Today, Chris LaFranchi and I talk about One Reef and the actions that work to save our reefs! Local communities are the most effective environmental stewards when armed with the right partnerships and resources. Also, we all can do one thing -- reduce plastic,support the Great Barrier Reef, bug your congressman, support local reef groups!!
“It’s not too late for coral reefs… indeed, for many other ecosystems that are facing challenges from climate change. It’s still possible to reduce the rate at which the climate is changing, and that’s within our power today.”
