Scientists have witnessed a “promising” recovery in the coral reefs around the Maldives, a recent survey has revealed.
The results show that some reefs now have more live coral cover than before the catastrophic El Niño bleaching event in 1998, which killed 95 percent of the country’s reefs – a key attraction for foreign tourists.
The Georgia Aquarium needs your input on the condition of coral reefs in the Florida Keys. Because of the drastic drop in tourism and government funding for coral protection and restoration, we want to find out how divers and snorkelers perceived the reefs during their dives and whether they would be willing to fund new financial methods to support coral reef restoration. Please take 10 minutes to fill out this survey and tell us what you think. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
I teach on-going classes for Project AWARE for children of all ages. This is a non-diving & non-snorkeling class. The course can be taught at your home, classroom, birthday parties, hospitals or my home. Classes taught in the evenings and on the weekends in a fun atmosphere.
