Indonesian Coral Reefs in Danger

coral-reefs_aceh.jpgIndonesia is a country with some of the world’s richest coral reefs but over the years, rising sea temperatures have led to severe coral bleaching in some of the most spectacular reefs off the palm-fringed islands of Sulawesi and Bali that are home to exotic fish like the brightly coloured clown fish and scorpion fish. Scientists fear many of Indonesia’s beautiful reefs, already significantly damaged by blast fishing and pollution, now face an even graver threat: global warming. As a scuba diver for many years I enjoyed being underwater more than I did on land and this environmental problem I do find worrying. Let me know what your opinion is of this.
