Scientists have discovered that an underwater graveyard of dead corals off the coast of Kiritimati is slowly coming back to life.
With the alarming news that Australia's Great Barrier Reef is in the brink of death, scientists are formulating live-saving techniques to prevent coral death and the declining population of marine life.
The Great Barrier Reef was declared dead on Friday after an obituary was posted on Outside. However, to clarify things, the reef is not dead but is sick and dying.
NASA's CORAL mission will conduct an airborne study of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.
A group of environmentalists has come up with a solution to save the Caribbean corals: 3D printing.
For those who have yet to visit Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, now would be the best time to visit. Reports state that the Great Barrier Reef is dying, with almost half of the reef’s corals already having vanished. All this due to the effects of global warming and coral bleaching.
Researchers have found that rising sea levels could significantly lower water temperatures around coral reefs and help reduce coral bleaching.
Proving that the relationship between coral reefs and fish are much more complex and enduring, scientists have discovered that corals reefs are as much dependent on fish.
In an attempt to demonstrate how coral bleaching is happening up close, Australian researchers have captured this phenomenon on video for the first time.
A team of researchers has invented a powerful underwater microscope that gives a first close-up look at how corals kiss, fight and behave against algae and climate change in their natural environment.
Do you know that every day, we lose billions because of coral bleaching? More than affecting coral communities, humans are also greatly affected in terms of the changing of our entire ecosystem, as well as in terms of revenue from biodiversity and tourism.
Current data show that while the hawksbill sea turtles may be safe from poachers in the Arnavons where they nest, they will be migrating back to their foraging grounds that are severely damaged by climate change.
The global coral bleaching due to climate change threatens the whole world. Notable bleachings already took place in the Lizard Island in Australia, Maldives, the Indian Ocean, Hawaii and Samoa.
Up to 93% of corals have been smothered by the sediment brought by the $205 million Deep Dredge project at Port Miami.
