Coral reefs are among the most beautiful and diverse places on Earth, but, like most other ecosystems, they are under threat due to human activities. Deforestation, over-fishing, global warming and ocean acidification are having catastrophic effects on marine food chains with dangerous, and often unknown, consequences for mankind. This talk focusses on the value of coral reefs to human populations and the multiple threats that are currently operating to reduce reef health. It also discusses numerous ways in which coral reef researchers and conservationists are trying to reverse the fate of these incredibly important and fragile ecosystems.
