Coral bleaching on Ningaloo reef, Western Australia

When I was on stabbatical at UQ last year, I had the opportunity to work with a team of scientists from CSIRO and UWA on Ningaloo Reef in northwestern Australia. (read a blog post I wrote about the adventure here) Sadly, reports of very high water temperatures and immenent mass bleaching on this extremely remote and relatively pristine reef are growing more dire. Read all about it here and here at ClimateShifts.
