Reef boom beats doom


Marine scientists say they are astonished at the spectacular recovery of certain coral reefs in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef Marine Park from a devastating coral bleaching event in 2006.

That year high sea temperatures caused massive and severe coral bleaching in the Keppel Islands, in the southern part of the GBR. The damaged reefs were quickly smothered by a single species of seaweed – an event that can spell the total loss of the corals.

However, a lucky combination of rare circumstances meant the reefs were able to achieve a spectacular recovery


I was so glad when I read this... it's probably the only good news I've read about mother nature in a long long time.

That and pretty much anything else humanity does in the ocean, LOL.

Mankind just needs to learn how to back off, and let an ecosystem recover on its own.
