“Our coral reefs have been under attack from climate change for the last 40 years. The main culprit is the intense increase in our ocean’s water temperature. Corals prefers waters between 70 and 85 degrees F. Higher temperature’s stress the corals and make them more susceptible to pollution and disease. We have lost a great deal of our coral cover all over the world. Coral reefs make up less than 1% of our ocean’s topography but house more than 25% of all ocean species. Corals are very important. In recent years science has discovered how to grow corals in both land based and marine nurseries. Eco-minded divers now have the opportunity to care for and out plant healthy corals. We have a chance to save our reefs and to help promote the health of our ocean’s. Come and join us at Capt. Hook’s in doing our part for the Florida Keys Reef tract.”
