Daily Overview
To celebrate today as World Oceans Day, check out this aerial image of fluorescing coral reefs off the coast of New Caledonia — a French island in the South Pacific. This still frame from the documentary “Chasing Coral” depicts a rare and beautiful, yet tragic phenomenon that certain reefs experience before death, in response to excess sun exposure and elevated ocean temperatures. Reefs like this one are disappearing in mass coral bleaching events around the world. In fact, as of 2016, more than half of Earth’s coral reefs have been lost. However, there are steps you can take to give corals a voice and protect our oceans — to find out more, visit @chasingcoral on Instagram and click the link in their bio.
