Coral Reefs critically important ecosystems

Coral reefs are critically important ecosystems on the planet. They cover less and 1% of the ocean floor but house over 25% of marine life. Unfortunately, coral reefs have been degraded by the effects of climate change. Warmer, more acidic sea waters are compromising the future of reefs. Now as scientists we know that we have to address climate change, but this isnt happening quick enough, so we're having to explore what else we can do to buy time for reefs to survive into the future.
