"It's getting warmer and the heat is killing life on earth. The oceans have been absorbing more than 90% of the heat trapped in our atmosphere due to human-caused greenhouse gases. This has a dramatic and adverse impact on ocean life, destroying coral habitats and stressing fisheries. Coral bleaching is a symptom of this injury we are inflicting on the earth.
Coral collection represents the dependence of many life forms on coral reefs. Human consumption affects nature and therefore we all have a responsibility to preserve coral.
