11 Feb Threats and Solutions for Coral Reefs
At the Coral Reef Alliance (CORAL), we’re on a mission to save the world’s coral reefs. But to do that, we first need to identify what the biggest threats to coral reefs are.
Luckily, we (and scientists all around the world) have the answer! According to scientific publications like the IPCC special report, the biggest threat to coral reefs around the world is climate change. When corals are also experiencing the negative effects of overfishing, water pollution, and unsustainable tourism on top of feeling the heat of climate change, it becomes difficult, if not impossible, for them to survive.
That’s why our work focuses on addressing threats to reefs so they can survive and adapt to the warming temperatures of climate change. Learn more about our solutions below, and stay tuned for ways that you can get involved and save coral reefs!
