Artist unknown // coral reefs occupy less than 1% of the ocean floor, but they are home to more than a quarter of all marine organisms. these delicate ecosystems provide food and other resources for over 500 million people in more than 100 countries around the world. they offer shoreline protection and even new medicine for cancer patients. however, 25% of the world’s reefs have already been destroyed. at current rates, 90% will be at risk by 2030. nearly all be will lost by 2050.

global warming causes coral bleaching (expulsion of algae from coral tissue which causes the coral to turn white) must be curbed. coral reefs need 10-15 years to recover from bleaching episodes. with the increasing frequency of bleaching events, most reefs may never recover. scientists have found that plastics also cause diseases in corals. they project that 15.7 billion pieces of plastic can pollute coral reefs by 2025.

we have the power to help save our “rainforests of the sea” by
1) not touching coral or buying coral souvenirs
2) practicing sustainable fishing and eating only sustainably caught fish
3) volunteering for beach clean-ups and at marine conservation programmes
4) reducing single use plastic waste
5) most importantly, it is critical that we all reduce carbon emissions.

Happy #earthday from #photofairs 🌳whilst we are celebrating our beautiful planet today artist @mandybarkerphotography compelling photographs remind us of how fragile our earth is and that we need to look after our oceans and the wider ecosystem: "water is the essential ingredient for any life-supporting world but which is now under threat from over 8 million tons of man-made plastic that enter the oceans each year."
