Reefs Need Heroes
WHY CORAL REEFS MATTER
Coral reefs are the most diverse ecosystems on earth, the backbone of life in the oceans, and vital to all life on our planet. It takes thousands of years for coral thickets to grow into a reef and yet, in just the last 35 years, 98% of reef-building hard corals have been destroyed in the Caribbean Sea. Once I saw what a healthy marine ecosystem could be, I knew I had to do something to help preserve, protect, and restore the others.
I will share more about coral restoration and individuals, organizations, businesses, and governments working to preserve and restore reefs on this site, and invite you to share your comments, observations and experiences. Follow our blog, and become a part of our mission.
