Discussions Discussion Life on the Reef: Amazing World of Coral Fish…
Camilla Pashar, Nov. 14, 2011

Why Are We Killing Coral Reefs? Coral reefs are likely to become the first ecosystem completely destroyed by humans, predicts Dr. Peter Sale, a leading United Nations ecologist. His new book, Our Dying Planet, explains:

“It is not pollution, or overfishing, or mass bleaching, or climate change, or any of the other factors I have mentioned that is killing our coral reefs. It is all of these factors together. Or, to put it more plainly, the cause of the destruction of coral reefs is us.”

The only possible silver lining is that we still have the power to reverse course and save at least some of these magical living communities. But, change must come quickly.

Peter Sale, discusses evidence of the wholesale destruction of coral reefs in the interview below:
