All fragile ecosystems are in danger of faltering when external forces upset their balances. Pollution is a major contributing factor in the death of coral eco-systems all over the world, as are weather, development, etc.

While much is being done to preserve them, many reefs have already died.

What do you mean “our” coral reefs.
