Coral reefs in the Caribbean are slowly dying! It's estimated that ⅙ of the reefs will be dead in the next 20 years! What is the purpose of these reefs, and can this damage be stopped?

Fish, corals, lobsters, clams, seahorses, sponges, and sea turtles are only a few of the thousands of creatures that rely on reefs for their survival." How do coral reefs protect lives and property? http://oceanservice.noaa.gov/facts/coral_protect.html "The coral reef structure buffers shorelines against waves, storms, and floods, helping to prevent loss of life, property damage, and erosion." Importance of Coral Reefs http://oceanworld.tamu.edu/students/coral/coral4.htm "Coral reefs are important for many reasons. Most importantly, they provide protection and shelter for many different species of fish." From despair to repair: Dramatic decline of Caribbean coral can be reversed http://www.iucn.org/?uNewsID=16056 "With only about one-sixth of the original coral cover left, most Caribbean coral reefs may disappear in the next 20 years, primarily due to the loss of grazers in the region, according to the latest report by the Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network (GCRMN), the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)."

ASMR Caribbean Coral Reef SCUBA Tour
 
37:51
Immerse yourself in this video and take a breathtaking underwater journey with me as we explore tropical, underwater coral reef gardens, and swim with the fascinating, colorful ocean life of Cane Bay, on the north shore of St. Croix, United States Virgin Islands. In this 'mostly soft-spoken/some whispering' episode, I'll identify marine life, tell you a bit about them, and hopefully lead you to a floating feeling of deep relaxation. The audio of SCUBA breathing, bubbles, underwater sounds, etc., were all recorded diegetically - captured live at the same the video was recorded. I left that audio slightly raw to give you a more true-to-life sound experience. My voice-over, of course, was added in post. Caribbean coral reefs, some of the most distinctive and unique natural underwater structures in the world, may be extinct in a few decades, so it is a privilege for me to share this experience with you, my lovely viewers. Please hit that "LIKE" button if this episode appealed to you, and SUBSCRIBE to my channel and share many more relaxing adventures with me. *At the very least, you can run this video on a loop on your computer desktop for quite a nifty screensaver if I may so say myself.

03:23
The worlds reefs and corals are dying at an alarming rate. Corals in the Caribbean and Florida have bleached when sea surface temperatures rose and were higher than the mean sea surface temperature for as little as one month. Coral reefs are important as shelter and feeding grounds for a variety of fish species. When there is a massive die-off of coral, the bleached coral is colonized by algae, the reef becomes populated by only herbivorous fish, and the reef may never recover. music by Artist: Alex Alexandroff 01 - I believe

Coral reefs are some of the richest hotspots of biodiversity on the planet. The warm water reefs of the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea are well know, but they don't only occur in warm waters. In some of the oceans coldest, darkest depths they are thriving. The deep water reefs are formed by icebergs as they slide across the sea bed, leaving behind perfect foundations for coral to build upon. Hidden from view, they criss cross the planet from the deep water tropics to the freezing Arctic. Some have never been explored by humans. Underwater cameramen have ventured down to the pitch blackness to find life thriving in the Florida Reef. See for yourself!

Unfortunately there are not that vibrant anymore today. Coral reefs have suffered from the rise of water temperature, rise in acidity, destructive fishing methods and severe storms caused by climate change." - Peter Schneider. "Rainbow Reef Relaxation" is a 3-hour long, sweeping yet majestic & vibrant underwater journey to the world's most beautiful lagoons, as captured by Nature Relaxation collaborator Peter Schneider (Underwatercam) paired with ambient underwater sounds and brand new ambient music by the Cynic Project. Filmed in High Definition several years ago, thanks to its age this film offers magical glimpses of an underwater world that is bursting with life, color, and beauty. Unfortunately, reefs today in most of the world are suffering from severe bleaching and so with this film we hope to raise awareness by showcasing the divine beauty that only pristine underwater reefs can present, in hopes that it will motivate the viewer to take action and help save them before its too late! (https://news.nationalgeographic.com/2018/01/coral-bleaching-reefs-climate-change-el-nino-environment/) More from Peter S: "We all know that nowadays! This gives us the privilege and also duty to change and rethink our role in nature. What we also know today is that everything is connected and we are all a part of Nature, yes we are nature. So we don’t have to save the world, but recognize it as family. What we do to the world, the world will give it back to us. Equally the good and the bad things, that is law. The good news in it is, ...it is all up to you and me and everyone. You matter, I matter because we are all belonging to the same family. Now take a deep breath and join us for a dive beneath the waves."

Caribbean Coral Reef All But Gone
 
01:06
Caribbean Coral Reef All But Gone - as part of the news series by GeoBeats. Have you ever been snorkeling or scuba diving in a coral reef? The latest reports indicate live coral inhabits only 8 percent of the reefs in the Caribbean islands. Compared with a 50 percent coverage in the 1970s, the fast decline of live coral is devastating to the ecosystem of this area. Besides bringing in tourism for the economy, coral reefs serve as protection and food for growing fish. Scientists estimated last year that 75 percent of the coral reefs in the Caribbean were threatened along with 95 percent of the reefs in South East Asia. At the current rate of destruction, by 2050 the World Resources Institute has said, "virtually all of the world's coral reefs would be in danger." Over fishing, pollution, and rising water temperature are among the threats. About 275 million people on Earth live less than 20 miles from a coral reef. More remote regions of the Caribbean, such as The Cayman Islands, are experiencing a slower loss of coral reefs with 30 percent remaining. What do you think should be done to protect coral reefs?

Caribbean Coral Reefs Dying - YouTube
 
11:35
The destruction of the corals around the world is on a scale unprecedented challenging the survival of coral species, reefs, tropical fish and possibly the oceans. We were swimming and filming here at the Barcelo Maya Beach Tropical less than a year ago and now witnessing the algae encasing the corals has given us a first hand view of the devastation taking place. The Caribbean's coral reefs have collapsed and are on the verge of dying, according to a new report released by the international Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The report comes after the most comprehensive study yet of the Caribbean coral reefs, showing that they are dying because of both overfishing and climate change, reports National Geographic. The coral reefs have gone from 50 to 60 percent cover in the 1970s to less than 10 percent. Carl Gustaf Lundin, director of IUCN's Global Marine and Polar Programme, stated that, "I'm sad to tell you it's a dire picture." NBC News notes that John Bruno, a University of North Carolina marine biologist who contributed to the new data, stated: "Our preliminary analysis suggests that the state of Caribbean reefs continues to worsen, primarily due to ocean warming. To reverse this dire trend, job one is to halt the increase of greenhouse gas emissions." 01 - Dieter Werner - Klatwa Sahary (Sahara curse)

Bob Steneck - How to kill a coral reef: Lessons from the Caribbean
 
17:54
Seminar title: How to kill a coral reef: Lessons from the Caribbean Presented by: Bob Steneck Date: 18-19th October 2007 Seminar type: CoralCoE symposium Presentation given at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies 2007 symposium "Coral reef futures". Bio: Prof. Steneck studies ecological processes in the benthic marine realm. My experiments focus on the food webs, structure and dominant organisms of coastal marine communities. My "laboratory" is the Gulf of Maine's subtidal zone in which I use SCUBA diving, under- water video systems, manned submersibles and the University of Maine's remotely operated vehicle as primary research tools. I'm currently studying lobsters, sea urchin and kelp in Maine. I also work on the ecology of coral reefs in the Caribbean. In all cases my focus is on in situ ecology. I think an important way to understand the organisms or the system is to observe them first hand - in their habitat.
Scientists Are Breeding Super Coral That Can Survive Climate Change | VICE on HBO
 
14:12
They still look beautiful, but coral reefs are dying at staggering rates — experts project that 90 percent of the world's reefs will be gone by 2050. But a growing group of scientists around the world are searching for innovative solutions to make sure that doesn't happen. Coral reefs are among the earth’s most precious natural resources. They harbor a million species and provide food for 500 million people around the world. But warming waters, pollution and overfishing have badly damaged these precious ecosystems; roughly 50 percent of the world’s corals have been lost in just the last 30 years. “The rates of change in our environment are far outpacing the intrinsic capacity of coral reefs to survive.” said Dr. Ruth Gates, the Director of the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology, where she is pioneering research that could help corals survive. “If we don’t mitigate at all, coral reefs will not be the things we’re worrying about, it will be the survival of our species.” Dr. Gates is just one of the scientists devising innovative ways to take coral reef restoration into their own hands. Her lab has started to breed and distribute, "super coral" — the strongest breeds of coral that can thrive in warmer environments. And in Curaçao, a small coral rich island in the Caribbean Sea, a team of scientists are finalizing a technology that could distribute fertilized coral eggs across the ocean, repopulating reefs worldwide. VICE's Ben Anderson visited with scientists who are working around the clock to solve one of the most significant environmental problems of our time.

Jamaica's Coral Reefs Are In Crisis - What Can Be Done?
 
23:45
This film discovers how conservationists and fishermen in Jamaica work together to help restore Jamaica's coral reefs. Once known as the jewels of the Caribbean, Jamaica's reefs declined over decades. Hurricanes, disease, and pollution have all taken their toll on the reefs, but the main culprit was overfishing. In order to thrive reefs need fish but, fisherman also need fish, and there are not enough fish left for either of them. Now in order to safeguard the fish and the reefs, fisherman are leading the charge to set aside no-fish zones. This film follows a team of scientists from Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation and The Nature Conservancy as they work with the fisherman to create the first ever fish sanctuary in a remote part of Jamaica.

Although ecosystem managers in Australia have worked hard to preserve the reefs, the past couple of decades have brought a new threat that can't be solved by any one country alone: human-induced global warming. Rising ocean temperatures have caused mass coral bleaching in coral reefs around the world, in every tropical ocean from the Caribbean to the South Pacific. This is now considered to be the biggest threat that coral reefs face, and they face many, including overfishing, pollution, storm damage, and invasive species.

Caribbean Has Lost Most of Its Coral Reef
 
01:04
A team from the Caitlin Group will soon examine the Caribbean coral reef and expect to find that in recent years 80 percent of it has been destroyed. Climate change, coastal overdevelopment, pollution, and oceanic acidification were specified as the primary culprits. A team from the Caitlin Group will soon examine the Caribbean coral reef and expect to find that in recent years 80 percent of it has been destroyed. The experts believe that area conditions have created the perfect storm for the extensive degradation of the marine habitat. Climate change, coastal overdevelopment, pollution, and oceanic acidification were specified as the primary culprits. Among the many problems those factors can cause, one of the most significant is coral bleaching. As ocean temperatures rise, the polyps that build the coral structures die off. As coral disappears, the oceanic food chain becomes increasingly threatened. Reefs not only provide shelter and breeding areas for smaller marine life, they serve as hunting grounds for larger aquatic inhabitants. Problems created by Caribbean reef lost extend to the dwellers of dry land as well. The area's economy largely depends upon the tourism and fishing opportunities the coral provides. Worldwide, coral reefs have been valued at up to 170 billion dollars based on the food, jobs, medicines, and coastal protection they provide.

The last Caribbean coral garden?
 
11:23
SWITCH TO HD using the gearwheel in the lower right corner! Enjoy this video dive tour of Cordelia Banks, south of the island of Roatan, one of the few remaining back-reef coral gardens left in the Caribbean. The site is dominated by large mounds of lettuce coral with thickets of staghorn coral and occasional elkhorn outcrops. These amazing stands of living coral are less than 2 km from Roatan's largest town, airport and cruise ship harbors. Note the very large example of the dark olive green sponge Neopetrosia rosariensis at 7:00.

Elkhorn Coral: Caribbean Reef Rarity, Part I
 
14:17
Elkhorn Coral seen on a reef along the western coast of Puerto Rico. This rare species, Acrapora palmate, which once flourished throughout the shallow waters of the Caribbean and Florida, has been estimated to have decreased by 90 to 95% (or even more) in the past 40 years. The Elkhart Coral stands seen in this video show a very rare sight: rather robust stands of Elkhorn Coral in the year 2015. Much of the information in the voice-over was gleaned from the NOAA website on Elkhorn Coral: http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/pr/species/invertebrates/elkhorncoral.htm
