Coral reefs are the biodiversity hotspots of our ocean . . .
While coral reefs rather humbly only account for <1% of the total area of the oceans, they still affect 25% of all marine species who have some part of their life cycle within the reefs. In other words, they are hella important to the balance of the ocean.
Yet did you know that if average global temperates increase by as little as 1.5 degrees Celsius, 70-90% of all coral reefs will die? And if it increases by 2 degree Celsius, 99% of all coral reefs die. Yes, 99% of ALL coral reefs.
