Warming climate undoes decades of knowledge of marine protected areas

  • Scientists raise a call to reduce global greenhouse emissions and poor land practices that input pollutants to coastal waters, in order to protect crucial tropical coral reefs.
  • Marine reserves are an important tool for enhancing biodiversity and fish biomass by preventing damage and over-exploitation by fishing.
  • They’ve been helping protect marine wildlife for decades, but climate change is leaving them defenseless, as it causes coral reefs to die.
  • These conclusions are based on studying 20 years worth of data on coral reefs in Seychelles, where 90% of coral died from heat-caused bleaching in 1998.
  • After the bleaching, which will occur more often as temperatures rise, the Seychelles reefs weren’t able to fully recover.
