Coral reefs are some of the most threatened ecosystems on the planet. But there is good news: coral reefs can adapt to global threats if we 1) keep them healthy and reduce local threats, and 2) curb carbon dioxide emissions to slow the pace of climate change.
- 75% of the world’s coral reefs are currently threatened
- 90% of coral reefs will be threatened by 2030
- 100% of reefs will be threatened by 2050 if we don’t take action now
