More than 20% of the world’s coral reefs have already been destroyed. The main cause of coral death is the rapidly changing climate, but local threats such as overfishing and pollution exacerbate the rate of destruction. Despite the considerable loss, many reefs still thrive and have the potential to adapt to changing conditions with our collective support. It is projected that without decisive, large-scale actions, this fragile marine ecosystem will collapse during the next few decades. This card supports high impact organizations working to save coral reefs. Meet the organizations by visiting the page “partners.”
