What can we do to help?

Scientists predict that in the next century a large majority of our worlds corals will die or be seriously injured. This is going to be a serious problem considering how dependent our global society has become on reefs.

Why are our Reefs Dying?

The main thing that has left an impact on coral reefs across the world is bleaching. There was a “great bleaching” that began in 2015, and slowed in 2017 that damaged over 29 coral reefs.

“The Rain Forest of the Ocean”

Only forty years ago coral reefs were thriving all across the globe. Reefs were illuminated by vibrant corals living in a symbiotic relationship with hundreds of thousands of fish species and other marine organisms. Recently this is not the case.

Immigration in Detail

I chose immigration as my political issue because I knew it was a prominent issue but I was not very educated in the topic. Ever since Trump became the president I have noticed that many more people discuss immigration but I was not very educated in the subject. I have heard many discussions but I never really learned in detail […]

Environmental conservation is becoming an increasingly prevalent issue in today’s world. It is becoming widely known that our environment is crucial to our survival, and if it continues to degrade, so will our societies. There are many groups that help with conservation efforts, but as a society, most of us do very little to contribute, and in reality most of […]
