Global Warming

Global warming, caused by burning fossil fuels, is the greatest threat to the Reef.

Coral Bleaching

Warming waters can lead to coral bleaching – a process that causes corals to turn white and die when the sea temperatures remain too hot for too long.

Extreme weather

Global warming also means more intense storms, cyclones, and floods that damage coral, seagrass and marine life.

Ocean Acidification

Carbon pollution from the burning of fossil fuels is absorbed by the ocean, causing the water to become more acidic. Ocean acidification slowly eats away at the very structure of the shells and coral, the bones of our beautiful Reef.
