  • I think that the connection to physical feature might be a slight stretch, but I the mental aspects are very interesting. I would like to read more about how they discovered this.

  • I think it’s really interesting how you made a connection to zoos and our societies consumption of meat to testing vaccines on animals. I never though of like that, and it helps to put a broader perspective on the moral choices involved.

    • Chris, this is a very interesting post. I love the vivid descriptions and information about the reefs; it’s something I have never really put much of my thought into. This piece helped me learn about reefs so much more than I already knew about this topic. I did not know that they are deteriorating. I’d love to hear more about this topic and what we can do to prevent this deterioration of the “rainforest of the ocean” and instead help it grow. Great segment of writing and a very interesting topic!
