Coral Reefs: April 2010 Archives

Coral Reef Roundup

|

There's been lots of news from the world of coral reefs lately--some good, some not so good. Coral reefs cover less than 1% of the world's oceans but contain about 25% of all identified marine species. They are highly susceptible to many environmental hazards, such as pollution, destructive fishing practices, and the harmful effects of climate change, particularly ocean acidification. Along with rainforests and mangroves, coral reefs are one of the island ecosystems most in need of protection, and the setting of many Seacology projects.
