Coral Reefs and Ocean Acidification
The oceans are ecosystems of great fragility, especially Coral Reefs. Recently of large concern to marine scientists, educators, and filmmakers, is the stark reality that the oceans are currently under one of the greatest threats ever: Ocean Acidification. Leading marine scientists are now warning us that our current rate of carbon emission is making our oceans more acidic. This change is happening so rapidly that it poses a serious threat to biodiversity and marine life. Some research shows that if left unchecked, Ocean Acidification could destroy all Coral Reefs by as early as 2050. This destruction has the potential to disrupt other oceanic ecosystems, fisheries, habitats, and even entire food chains.
