A recent report estimated that 75 percent of remaining coral reefs are currently threatened, and many have alvready been lost. Even some of the most remote and pristine reefs are losing species. 

There are growing threats in our own backyard, since 1985 coral cover has declined by half along the Great Barrier Reef.

The cumulative effects of many combined issues like climate change, catchment pollution, coastal development and fishing require the need for urgent action.The world needs to come to the party to address climate change globally, otherwise our future worldwide may be threatened – the tea party may just be over!
