My Summary

Coral reefs are the "rainforests of the sea," an incredible biodiversity reservoir. They provide food for 100 million coastal peoples, are a major attraction for millions of tourists, protect coastlines and are a source of new medicines. Sadly, reefs are facing an unprecedented crisis due to overfishing, blast and poison fishing, sedimentation, global warming and pollution. About 16% have been lost in the last five years alone, with another 27% severely threatened. Reef Check is one solution to the coral reef crisis. With your help, we can save the reefs
