It's no secret that the Great Barrier Reef is in danger as climate change and ocean acidification diminish coral populations, but now new research suggests that an ancient slowdown that occurred after the Ice Age warned this iconic ecosystem of its bleak future.
A wealth of research has warned that corals reefs, true reservoirs of biodiversity, are seriously threatened by human activities and climate change. But now researchers are offering a glimmer of hope, finding that corals may not be doomed to disappear after all.
It is no secret that in the midst of climate change, coral reefs around the world are suffering. However, a warming world is not the only factor putting these reefs in danger - overfishing also plagues these colorful ecosystems. And now new research offers a glimmer of hope, finding that fish are the answer to their problems.
Just after recent research warned that the world's most iconic ecosystems, including the Great Barrier Reef, may collapse under climate change, a new study is saying that this iconic site can in fact be saved.
Around 1,000 healthy corals have been displaced, and efforts are being made to save more, as dredging projects continue around the port of Miami.
