Who cares about this? Environmentalists do....but we don't have NEARLY the resources of big business, oil companies, shipping companies, cruise lines.....

Depressing but it won't be the only 1 lost+think it'll be much sooner than 20 years as our pathetic population keeps increasing so does the damage. Thx Cal

The Caribbean reefs have been in a steady decline since the over fishing and tourism epidemic since the sixties.
Thanks Cal, glad I got to dive them before they dissappear

We must do everything we can to protect coral reefs. They are vital in Ocean health.
